Always utilize the chain stop provided with the
windlass/bow roller combination. The chain
stop prevents the anchor from accidently
releasing while the boat is moving thus
preventing 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. Educational
programs are sponsored by publications and organi-
zations such as the US Power Squadron, US Coast
Guard Auxiliary and the American 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, keeping the line ﬁrm. Determine the angle
that will work to pull the anchor free.
