I may very well have misinterpreted this message string, so pardon my comments if wrong, but:
Quick is the maker of the chain counter and helm anchor control device, the hoisting hardware is Lewmar.
The notion that an anchor windlass, a chain counter, or a remote to active the windlass is a “gadget” or “lacking simplicity” is ridiculous.
I think this is an informative report and I very much appreciate the insight.
