Santa was good to me this year by getting me a windlass for my boat. The winlass is a horizon 500. It let's line out at 98 feet a minute and retrieves at 62 feet a minute. My boat is a 22 foot w/a, and I do alot of anchoring.

I have heard a couple of different opinions on a free fall vs. a power down. Suposedly power down does not get tangled but is to slow, Where a free fall is faster but tends to get tangled.

Can anyone with some windlass experience give me some advice? I would like to do it right the first time around.
