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.
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
weights to fit different boats, uses, and conditions. Your
Four Winns dealer can tell you which anchor will work
best for your boat.
