Boat Anchor Winch

A boat anchor winch is one of the most helpful tools you can add to your fishing boat.  With an appropriate anchor winch one person can drive the boat, let the anchor out, and retrieve the anchor smoothly.  While it is wise to always have a partner on the boat, even more fun, sometimes you may be by yourself, or your partner is unable or unwilling to work the anchor.

There are manual and electric anchor winches available for you to choose from.  The following model from Anchormate comes with new features.
