extremely well designed.. i would make one change on it though.. the plate that mounts infront of the motor section.. i would make the plage a little longer and made so can fit under the motor mount and bolted to the boat there instead of bolting seperatly..some boats have a lip where it would mount and needs spacers to even it out.. if this plate would slide udner motor mount , those 4 bolts would be more then enough to hold both.. also add line that heaver so wont break and loose anchore if in rough wind or water.

The Screws in the plastic cover were striped by being put in too tight at the mfg. Were also rusted on the inside where they were threaded into the bracket.Had to drill one out and re-tap the threads and go purchase other stainless screws to replace the bad ones. After that everything else was basic and easy to do. Anyone without the right tools and know how would have sent it back for a replacement.

          Fits neatly on the bow deck and takes up no room. Keeps the anchor line neatly spooled so there is no trip hazards and no tangles. Releases the anchor with a push of a button and brings the anchor up just as easy. I have a 17 foot Aquasport and this is a great addition to my boat. This was a Christmas Gift from my sons. So far its the most practicle gift I have received.

              Depending on the anchor that you purchase and the way it is mounted in most cases it will hang down.

            What is the strength of the 3/16 " rope?
            Asked on 5/3/2009 by Sisko from Acton, Indiana

            1 answer

            • Staff Reviewer

              A:

              Since this is an anchor winch you need to know that this winch has a 25 lb. max. anchor capacity. That is the strength of the line. This product states that it is suitable for a boat up to 21 feet long. So a 20' smokercraft boat is less than 21' long. It would be plenty suitable for that boat also. There are not any accessories available for this anchor winch that will aid in recovering the line, because we have not heard of the winch having problems in doing this. If there were to become a problem with it we can tell the supplier that something needs to be done. We are on our third year of selling this product though and never heard of a line recovery problem yet.
