Re: Anchor winch turning itself on!

Joerg Esdorn

On the 55, there are two separate feeds for the anchor winches: one controlled from the dashboard in the cockpit, which has separate switches for the port and starboard winches. The other is controlled from the wireless remote, which itself has an on/off button.  The problem I encountered was that the on/off button on the remote was shortened out, in addition to the up button for the port winch.  To turn of both feeds, you can turn off cockpit controls, which however also turns off all other winches on deck, including the furling motors and the davits, for example.  If you don’t want to or cannot do that, you have to turn off the fuses in the bow locker.
