Arne Opperud replied to Greg Donnelly's discussion anchor windlass failure in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"Harry That's the box I was thinking of. It's not the windlass relay, but the relay or switch that controls the feed of 12V to the control side of the relay under the berth in the forepeak. This is probably the weakest point of the windlass…"
