Howdy Skopje. I hope you are right on the windlass, thats one of my
winter projects. I bought a powerwinch 31 and am getting ready to
rough it in on the first mild weekend.

Did you run into any problems with the anchor locker? Any issues
with the depth or position the downshot imposes on the windlass
itself? Also, does the anchor actually free-fall down or does
someone have to give it a start (with the pulpit on my 2510, the
anchor actually pitches back, not down, and doesn't look like it will
freefall).

My other major project is an autopilot. I'm out of room on the
console for guages though, so it may be a navpod for the display.
Anyway, it's good to find a pool of parker folks in one place again.

Thanks
