Classification Societies and Lewmar require that a vessel at anchor must hâve its chain/rode held by a chain stopper or équivalent strong point at ail times
At ail times it is the responsibility of the boat operator to ensure that the anchor and rode are properly stowed for the prevailing sea conditions. This is particularly important with high-speed powerboats, because an anchor accidentally deploying while under way can cause considérable damage. An anchor windlass is mounted in the most exposed position on a vessel and is thus subject to severe atmospheric attack resulting in a possibility of corrosion in excess of that experienced with most other items of deck equipment. As the windlass may only be used infrequently, the risk of corrosion is further increased. It is essential that the windlass is regularly examined, operated and given any necessary maintenance.
Please ensure that you thoroughly understand the operation and safety requirements of the windlass before commencing the installation. Only persons who are completely familiar with the Controls and those who hâve been fully made aware of the correct use of the windlass should be allowed to use it.
