Wow! That drum winch is huge. Do you need that big f one for that tiny anchor?   :rimshot:

No. But it was more expensive, so I saved more with the “PONTOON” discount code on the EZanchorpuller website.

It’s the camera angle.  :jester:  Now I need a new iPhone  :jester:

The heft of the winch will come in handy when trying to lift a stuck, or we’ll set anchor.

I’m still curious how the line will lay on the spool and not bunch up in one spot :shrug9:

Maybe you can thumb the rode like a non-level wind reel. :wink:

I'm curious too. I am sort of expecting it to not wind level. I am hoping that it packs down enough to allow room. There's going to be a bit of a learning curve.

 Thanks naniamo. You are very observant. I have had a lot of practice making holes... then patching them.  :jester:

If necessary maybe you could back very slowly while turning to one direction or the other to get the rode angle to go on evenly, once the anchor becomes free.  :shrug9: Just thinking out loud.

Here's why you have to wind it on tight. I am going to take it out to deep water and drop anchor almost all the way, then rewind it. With the weight of the anchor and chain, it should wind on tight. (I hope)

That is awesome looking CS and it fits in perfectly with your boat, like it’s been missing since the day your boat was made.
Good to see you took some beer breaks, those are important when working on a boat  :jester:  :beerchug:

Mark if you really want it on tight just go down to cherry beach next time you launch. Anchor in 20ish feet of water back out till it’s all off the spool down to the final layer then leave the boat in idle reverse and winch it on. It will be tighter than you could imagine. I had too much line to do that so we did it by hand, burned up a couple sets of leather gloves but it’s on tight tight

Good idea. I was going to go out and “deep drop”. That’s how they said to do it. Your way sounds easier.  (Unless some idiot speeds by and fouls my stretched out anchor line)


Haha...Nacho always tells me the halibut are biting off Cherry Beach.

I wired the new nav lights today. I decided to put them on the bulkheads.  I was going to put them on the outside of the gunwales, but figured they would get bumped.

I also mounted the bow cleat next to the winch JIC I need to handline the anchor...and I wanted someplace to tie off a safety lanyard for the anchor.

Took the boat out to go to Cherry Beach, but the access to the ocean was closed through the Ammo depot due to Militaty Ops.

So I stretched it out inside Huntington Harbor where you are NOT supposed to anchor.

I wound it back on , tight with the boat in reverse, and the chain and rope still did not fit.

I had to remove another 20 or so feet of rope... I think I only have about 250’ of Dyneema, nylon, and chain. Not as much as I anticipated, but plenty for my needs.

Took a couple pics of a millionare’s boat and a stranded Duffy.
