      Hello Scooter,

      The Powerwinch Sport Fish 450 comes with the following items:
      - 1-Anchor Winch, 3 - 5/16-18 x 3.5 Stud, 3 - 5/16 Lock Washer, 3 - 5/16 Flat Washer, 3 - 5/16-18 Nut, 1 - 25A Circuit Breaker, 1 - Switch Plate, 4 - #10 x 3/4 Screw, Switch-DPDT and 1 - Mounting Template. Please read the following instructions for operating the Windlass:
      OPERATING THE ANCHOR WINCH ANCHORING
      1. Turn boat into wind and place boat motors in neutral.
      2. After the boat has stopped all forward progress, drop anchor by pressing the
      winch switch in the down position for approximately 5 seconds. After the
      anchor has begun to free-fall it is safe to release the switch.

      CAUTION NEVER REVERSE THE WINCH WHILE THE UNIT IS IN FREE-FALL MODE
      .
      3. After the desired amount of rope has
      been release, retrieve 3'-5' of line by
      pressing the switch in the up position.
      4. Tie the rope off to a deck cleat. DO NOT use the winch to tie-off the anchor.
      5. Place the boat's motors in neutral and allow the boat to drift back and set the
      anchor in the sea bed.

      RETRIEVING THE ANCHOR
      1. Untie the rope from the deck cleat.
      2. Align bow of boat with anchor rode.
      3. Place the boat's motors in forward and move boat slowly toward the anchor
      point. While moving press the winch switch in the UP position.

      CAUTION: DO NOT PULL THE BOAT TO THE ANCHOR POINT WITH THE ANCHOR
      WINCH. THIS CAN CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE WINCH MOTOR AND GEAR TRAIN.
      ALWAYS USE THE BOAT MOTOR TO MOVE TOWARD THE ANCHOR POINT.

      4. When the chain begins enter gypsy, the rode is almost retrieved. Do not
      allow the anchor to pull up to quickly into the davit or bow roller.
      5. When the anchor reaches the davit or bow roller, do not place too much
      tension on the chain between the winch and anchor. This can cause
      damage to the davit or winch gypsy.
      6. Tie off the anchor for storage and travel.

      Thank you,
      Steve

      A:

      This windlass accepts a 1/2" nylon anchor line and 1/4" high test chain. This is recommended for most boats up to 27'.
