Hi everyone, just bought Good to Go this year. She is a 1995 MkII. As a lot of people referenced on the site the chain skips the chain wheel under load when the anchor is deployed and under tension. I find it very dangerous for my kids to handle the anchoring process alone as the chain just 'ran' on my daughter last week and she could not stop it!
After scouring the site I could not find a fix for the poorly design windlass location (horizontal Maxwell VW 1000). I have checked windlasses that seem to have a spring loaded arm to keep the chain on the chainwheel but I don't think they would fit the location of the current windlass in the chain locker. Has anyone replaced the their windlass recently with a model that fit the location (starboard side) and it horizontal?
Thanks in advance
Good to Go
