Hi,
Does the 575 have a windlass breaker switch or is it fact a fuse either or it seems very difficult to get to behind the footwell of the Nav table?

Duncan,

I think you will find there is only a fuse which as you say is on the wiring panel outboard of the nav station seat. Fuse F82 which is 160 amp on our boat. We do a lot of anchoring and the winch is put under a lot of strain when tightening the chain when tying back or Med mooring and we have not had an issue with this fuse in five seasons.

Hi Wayne
That is great to know as other boats I have been on I have needed this knowledge.

Many thanks

Wait a minute... there is a fuse below the nav station on the main board, but there is also a button on the wurth panel (12V on my boat) which must be on.   Its not a breaker, just a switch/relay, but...   there is a fuse there as well...
