Electric Anchor windlass

Advice please
Posted: 9 Aug 2006 - By: Andrew Gardener
I am considering wimping out and buying an electric anchor windlass for St Brigid (R32). Having done some research I am getting very different answers from the manufacturers (Lofrans / Lewmar / Quick so far) on the appropriate wattage / KG pull. Can anyone offer any real world advice and recommendations please?. I would rather err on the more powerful side. Also is it absolutely necessary to change the chain for calibrated?

Thanks in advance
