Aleutian 70, Global Surveyor

World tested cruising comfort, hurricane tested steel strength.

A 66 Kg main CQR anchor and 80m of 15mm chain has been chosen to provide the main ground tackle.

The main anchor is housed on the bowsprit giving the best lead for secure anchoring. The kedge is stowed at the stern and drops over a stern roller.

The electric windlass is situated well aft where its warping capstan can additionally be used for the control of head, spring and stern mooring lines, recovery of the stern anchor and the hoisting of sails. It also allows the 400 Kgs of chain to be stowed within the keel lowering the CG and keeping the weight amidships.
