Hi, I am wondering if anyone has any experience with the above windlass? Mine was working fine for the first couple weeks we had the boat, but seems to have developed an issue when it comes to using the manual operation. When trying to bring in the chain manually with the handle in the hole in the warping drum, it slips, I can feel it slipping inside. This is with the clutch tight and it works fine hauling the anchor up on electric, so I don't think it is the clutch. My concern is two fold, one that this is a symptom of a potential bigger issue and two, that if the electric fails I am stuck bringing in the anchor by hand.

Any advice appreciated, thanks.
