Anchoring System Mo’Chuisle is equipped with a Smith-Brothers aluminum drum-style hydraulic anchor winch. This winch is set into the for-deck. It holds 400 ft of 3/8” galvanized anchor chain. There is a sliding dog-clutch, which disengages the hydraulic motor allowing the drum to free wheel, for  rapid deployment of the anchor. It also has a forward and reverse control valve, should one wish to set the anchor hydraulically at a slower pace. There is a custom made heavy duty SS bow roller designed to accommodate Mo’Chuisle’s 175lb/ 80KG Bruce style anchor. There is a 3/8” SS chain hook on a snubber line for use when at when at anchor. There is a 35KG CQR type galvanized anchor in the locker below the winch for a spare. There is a Fortress 55 aluminum anchor and a 45 lb SS CQR anchor stored in the pilothouse roof locker.
