Anchor Winches

Anchor winches, also known as anchor windlasses, enable boaters to raise and lower their anchor with reduced difficulty and strain. These are usually aftermarket items, and making the right selection is determined by the style and size of the boat, anticipated anchoring conditions, and the type of ground tackle to be used. The general rule is to select an anchor winch that will support four times its usual working load, that is the combined weight of the anchor, rode and hardware.
