Why do you need an electric boat anchor winch?When your out fishing, and you decide to switch fishing spots a few times, if your like me, there is always a “not it” response when everyone realizes it’s time to pull up the anchor. Pulling up thirty to eighty feet of chain or rope and then the anchor, it gets old. Especially when you are in dirtier water, like in the delta or a mud bottom lake, and it’s just a mess. With an anchor winch, you can pull up your anchor automatically with the push of a button or a lever. So much simpler, and it’s these little luxury conveniences that you can add to your boat that just makes it better. So simple, so clean, and no storage mess for all that rope or chain as it reels up nicely on the spool of the electric boat anchor. Minn Kota DeckHand Anchor Winch40 Lbs.
