Anchor and windlass

On this page we have gathered some information regarding the anchor and windlasses that were standard from the shipyard on a 370 or have been later on added to S/Y Älva.

(All information, product pictureas and tables by courtesy of each product manufacturer.

The standard bow anchor delivered by Hanse on the 370 is a Lewmar Delta 16 kg (35 lb).

The secret of a good rope for the windlass is that the rope is heat set. This gives the rope a firmer structure and the "teeth" of the windlass gets a better grip as the rope is more compact thanks to the heat treatment. At least this is what Liros says.
