Hi Australia! Anyone there have experience with Drum Anchor Winches on a Mac?

Hi Australia!

We’re given to understand that “drum anchor winches” are very popular in your Australia part of the puddle. It seems to have a lot of advantages over our current “hand over hand” and the “vertical/horizontal capstan winches” available.

Before we go “pioneering” off on our own we thought it might be best to ask:
“Is there anyone in the Australian Mac community that’s might have some experience with “drum type anchor winches” and if there might be some who have already mounted one to a Mac?”

We’d hate to miss out on the opportunity to hear from people with knowledge and experience.

Australians sail some of the most interesting waters and region on the planet with a wide range of diversity and challenges. We figure that may be the reason for the drum winch’s popularity there.

We’d appreciate any experiences, advice, recommendations or cautions the Australian Mac community can share.
Thanks!

Best Regards
Over Easy 😎😎🐩🐈
