Hi all,
I've had a bit of a forensic look at both my anchoring systems this morning.  The attached pdf summarises my findings.
Essentially, my problem is being caused by the gypsy not loading correctly on deployment, thereby causing the chain to twist inside the locker.
This happens on both my old chain and windlass and my new(ish) chain and windlass.

I have one big request ... can someone please show me a 30 second video of their Lewmar V5/6 Vertical windlass deploying chain cleanly without this skipping on the gypsy? I need some faith that I am not chasing something that is actually just a defect in Lewmar's Windlass design.
