Do you turn the winch relays off on the DC panel or actually go to the winch
control boxes, one above the midships berth and the other in the engine

On the Super Maramu the breakers for the anchor and the other electric
winches are separate so that should not be a problem. In ten years we have
never made this boo boo before and nor have we ever switched the winches
off...ever. From now on we shall allways turn them off when we stop as we do
with the instruments. I was astonished nothing broke as the forestay was
pulled a long way back.
Best wishes from the Ionian, Anne and John, SM319
