A Technique I've used when my windlass quit was to take a long dock or other line from the rode to the primary winch. Use a rolling hitch on either chain or rope and bring it back to the cockpit. It is easier if someone drives the boat over the anchor. it works single handed too, though. power slowly in the direction you think the anchor is. stop, take in the slack, the reposition the boat. depending on scope, you may have to retie the line to the rode several times. The good thing about shallow florida water is you don't need much rode out. Is this clear?

Thanks for noting my anchoring question! Essentially I have a 35# CQR for the main anchor on my Allied Princess 36 Ketch. The manual windless is experiencing some "issues" which I can't afford to address.

However, down here in Florida there is A LOT OF SHALLOW Water, and I find difficulty getting the anchor back aboard. when I was on the ICW I would end up anchoring most ever night somewhere, and many days it took over 2.5 hours to get the anchor free. I know being on a solo passage complicated the pprocedure, but ther has to be abetter way to retrieve the hook.

Hope that clarifies the question.

I had a Chesapeake Bay Retriever I named Halimeda. I found the name in a name your baby book; it said it meant “of the water or loves the water.” When we bought Halimeda in 1997, we thought the name fit. I sold Halimeda in 2000 after living aboard for a year and sailing from Florida to Trinidad and up to the Chesapeake. See I bought her back last year and sailed her from the Chesapeake to Florida. See I live in Kansas.

Cabin eyebrow windows

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response.   Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
