Advice sought for new windlass on 49ft MT
I bought a restored/refitted 1979 Marine trader Pilothouse recently. It has an older Good rope windlass with 1/2 inch of rotting anchor line. No chain, just line. Looking to replace the entire assembly. I anchor in the Potomac and Chesapeake only. In other words, relatively shallow water with muddy/sandy bottom.
Hoping the power lines already in place will suffice, but otherwise I will just stick another booster battery up by the windlass to assist if needed. (My last boat, a 38-ft Carver, just had two 6-volt golf cart batteries in series and it's own charger for the windlass. Easy to install).
