Remote anchor winch rode shifting system

A system of rode guiding fixed composite turning blocks, and a supported under deck tube and seals that enables transfer of rope/chain or all chain rodes farther aft in the vessel near to the centre of gravity. A significant performance improvement is expected for sailing vessels by reducing pitching. The windlass and rode are located in a drier and more accessible location several metres back from the bow, usually abreast the mast.

Due to the variation between vessels, design and planning work is required to determine the best placement and arrangement of components. A structural shelf is required to mount the anchor windlass.
