"Our powerful salt water washdown pump is 240v, powered off the genset,I used to curse having to start the genny just to clean chain and anchor, but the genny needs to be started regularly, so it`s no bad thing."

Noisemakers need a load . just like the main engine to live long and survive.

That must be one nice BIG PUMP, if it can load the noisemaker very much.

A previous owner installed our 120vac, 23gpm salt water wasdown system and it's very effective. Like Bruce, we start the generator when we use it.

One could use a combination rode with a GB42 no problem. However the selection of the windlas would determine the practicality of using this type of rode.

All-chain makes the ground tackle system easier and faster to use.

Woof!

That's big time, compared to ours. Folks with something like that probably wouldn't mind cleaning mud out of chain!

It uses a 1 hp Westinghouse AC motor driving a big Jabsco impeller pump. While there is some pressure and volume loss at the end of the hose runs from the pump to the outlets in the bow and stern, the pressure is still more than sufficient to blast mud and muck off the chain and anchor in short order.

Marin: What size thru-hull and hose are to the pump?

Never measured them. The through-hull and seacock are the same as all the others on the boat including the raw water intakes for the diesels.

IF one is going to spend the bucks a 2 inch clutched belt driven pump on the main would work as emergency bilge pump, fire pump and deck wash.

Over 100GPM is a bunch of water!
