The windlass of your boat is, in most cases, in the bow of your ship, just above the chain locker. The chain locker is used to store all the chains, ropes, and anchors of your boat. Its operation can be manual, hydraulic, or electric, depending on the options of your ship and especially the weight and size of your anchor.

The windlass consist of crowns with grooves adapted to the dimension of the chain links. Sprockets and spools may or may not be claimable on the reel's power shaft and sometimes have their mechanical brake. To prevent the chain from turning more than ¾ of a turn on the sprockets, and risk the anchor hitting the bow of the boat and damaging it, a piece called an "ox tongue" can be added to these good systems. They are often complex and formed by 2 chain stops (ratchets) that allow eliminating the tension of the windlass once the anchor is in place and thus avoid damage to this part and its system.
In our store, you will find many references and windlass accessories for your boat and thus simplify your task by helping you with the anchor handling maneuvers.
