Dreaming and planning for my one day's boat refit
, hopefully not too far off now.
Been looking at windlasses at West and online.
I will have a Danforth and a CQR/Bruce/claw anchor
on the bow, both with a good bit of chain, and then rode
Debating on what type of windlass
to get that can haul up both anchors.
Install two of the same windlasses side by side.
-From what I have seen two single
units are cheaper then one double, PRO
-Twice as many holes and wiring
-If one breaks, the 2nd is still 100% usable, PRO
Install a double capstan windlass
-Smaller foot print (or not), PRO-CON
-Less holes and wiring
-If something breaks, may not be able to use either capstan, CON
Ideas or suggestions on what to get please?
