We extend to you a cordial "WELCOME ABOARD !" Come on in, make yourself at home, we are a friendly group of enthusiasts, and we also appreciate the classic Chris Craft Roamer, Corsair, and Lancer boats too , as they are all on the same family tree and share much in common ! Just start by posting a note introducing yourself to the group, that's all it takes here (we don't ask for or retain any personal information here, because our intention is to just "have fun and share information".
Tom, It was a first for me also. It's called an "Anchormatic" and it's all run from the lower helm. There is a toggle switch and an meter which gives you the reading in feet as you let out the anchor line. In the forward anchor line locker there is a anchor winch motor and gears that direct the rope down into a holding area. I'll know more about it in a few weeks and get a few closer pictures. I'll throw it out in the forum and see if anyone knows anything. Corey
