Section II. Operating Instructions
Operating controls and Indicators
a. BlackON/OFFswitch. Located on top of anchorwinch control panel (see Figure 2-1). The ON position closes circuit
for power to reach control panel from switchboard. OFF position opens circuit and stops power from reaching
anchor winch control panel.
b. Black REVERSE (IN) button. Right-hand button on anchorwinch control panel (Barge 1) or button closest to
deckhouse (Barges 2 and 3) (sea Figure 2-1). When pushed in, winds anchor cable onto winch reel. Touch lightly
for momentary retrieval or push firmly to lock in continuous retrieval position.
c. Black FORWARD (OUT) button. Left-hand button on anchor winch control panel (Barge 1) or button closest to
anchor (Barges 2 and 3) (see Figure 2-1). When pushed in, unwinds anchor cable from winch reel. Touch lightly
for momentary extension or push firmly to lock in continuous payout position.
d. Red OFF button. Center button on anchor winch control panel between black REVERSE (IN) and FORWARD
(OUT) buttons (see Figure 2-1). When pushed in, stops anchor winch.
e. RESET button. Located near bottom left of anchorwinch control panel (see Figure 2-1). Push to reset circuit
breakers within winch control panel.
Electric brake release. Located on end of electric motor/brake on top of winch (see Figure 2-2). Pull out to release
electric brake. Push in to engage electric brake.
g. Winch manual/power clutch. Located on rear of winch housing (see Figure 2-2). Place winch in power operation
by moving handle inboard (ENGAGE). An electric motor engages the winch through agear system. Moving handle
outboard (DISENGAGE), disengages electric motor and selects manual operation. By selecting DISENGAGE,
anchor can be allowed to free-fall with the manual brake providing the only control. This action is not
recommended unless electrical power is unavailable during anchoring. See cautions in paragraph 2-12. Normal
setting is ENGAGE.
h. Levelwind clutch. Located on inboard side of winch near center (see Figure 2-3). Pull handle out to turn levelwind
off. Push handle in to turn levelwind on. Normal position is on (handle in).
Manual brake operating handle. Located on inboard side of winch above mechanical brake (see Figure 2-3).
