Default Windless on a 2400 SCR

Has anyone done or seen a 2400 with a windless?
Because of health issues I am thinking of putting one on my 2400 SCR.
Any and all help will be greatfull.

Don

I had a Lewmar 700G installed on my 2400 SCR a few years ago. Well worth the expense. Just flip a switch. I'm on S.F. Bay and it makes anchoring a breeze.

Thanks Mike & Calguy.
Calguy, do you have any photos of your install?
I used to boat in SF Bay but have not been down there in quite some time, can't stand the traffic.

Mike
I know as I looked also.
Thanks

Calguy
You may have to reduce the size of the photos as this site wont take large format photos.
I do not know what size to reduce to.
Do you use all chain rode or chain/rope.
I did not think that there was enough room in the rope locker for that type windless with the motor under the deck.
Thanks
Don

Donald.....sorry could not load pix.....I have 25 ft of chain of the proper size. Also 100 ft of rope. That is plenty here in San Francisco Bay. Most of S.F Bay is very shallow. I usually anchor in no more than 30 ft of water. Am using a Bruce Anchor that hooks almost immediately. There is plenty of room for even more chain and rope in the locker...

A good windlass makes life so much easier out on the water. My model is 700G but now I think it is called Lewmar V 700.
