Astarte's Windlass


Astarte has a manual Simpson Lawrence Sea Tiger 555 windlass. 

The windlass straddles the forepeak bulkhead, with the chain coming down on the aft side of the bulkhead.

A specially fabricated hawspipe directs the chain forward so it falls into the chain locker forward of the bulkhead.

The 150 ft. chain is tailed by 180 ft of 5/8" nylon, stowed in the shelf to port.  Forward of the divider is an additional full anchor rode for a second anchor when needed.
