A windlass too small for the job will not only result in frustrationwhen the going gets tough but could ultimately compromise vesseland crew safety. Choosing the right anchor winch is crucial for peace ofmind and trouble free boating.

Estimating or measuring the depth of fall of the rode into the anchorlocker may dictate which type of windlass is most suitable for your vessel.

Rather it is the efficiency of thewhole winch, including the gearbox and motor, which counts. With the increasing popularity ofpowerful and compact on-board generators, AC powered winches are becoming a practicalconsideration for bigger boats. Hydraulic systems provide another power source well worthWhat PULL CAPABILITY will I need?The only meaningful way to rate anchor winch performance is by looking at what it will lift and atwhat speed. The two things to consider are (a) the maximum pull capability and (b) the workingload of the winch. Maximum pull (sometimes referred to as stall load) is the maximum shortterm or instantaneous pull of the winch. Working load is generally rated at about one third of themaximum pull and is usually considered to be the load that the winch is pulling once the anchor isoff the bottom. To determine your required maximum pull capability, complete the calculation below.1. Calculate ground tackle weight (anchor chain rope ground tackle)eg:Anchor30kg/66lbs 18m/60ft Chain45kg/100lbs 61m/200ft rope12kg/26lbs Ground tackle87kg/192lbs2. Calculate the maximum pull (total ground tackle x 3 Maximum pull)Safety guidelines suggest that the pulling capacity of the windlass should not be lessthan 3 times the total weight of the ground tackle.eg:GROUND TACKLEx3 maximum pull87kg/192lbs 261kg/576lbs In this instance an HRC8, HRC10, RC8, RC10, or VW1000 would be suitable, providingthe chain and rope size is applicable to the windlass being considered.

Deciding on the right anchorwinch for your boat depends on the size, not only of the boat, but also the ground tackle.Maxwell anchor winches and capstans are designed to take chain only, rope only or acombination of both. Automatic rope/chain systems are now commonly used on boats upto 20 metres (65 feet).
