Always utilize the chain stop provided with the
windlass/bow roller combination. The chain
stop prevents the anchor from accidently re-
leasing while the boat is moving thus prevent-
ing damage to the boat or possible injury or
death to individual(s) aboard the boat.
C - 4 CONTACTS
There are many good boating publications that have
information about your area and what other boats are
doing, such as clubs and other activities. Education
programs are sponsored by publications and organiza-
tions such as the U.S. Power Squadron, U.S. Coast
GuardAuxiliary and theAmerican Red Cross. See your
dealer about special courses available in the area. For
detailed information contact:
If the anchor becomes stuck, attach the vertical line to
the mooring cleat. Wave action on the bow may lift flukes
from the bottom and free the anchor. If the anchor is
still stuck, feed out a few feet of line and attach it to the
bow cleat. Maneuver the boat around the anchor, keep-
ing the line firm. Determine the angle that will work to
pull the anchor free.

Anchors are available in different shapes, sizes and

Four Winns dealer can tell you which anchor will work
best for your boat.
