Got a leccy motor?

Was there a couple weeks ago and saw someone that looked like a local with a front and rear anchor setup. They dropped their rear weight. Drove off it. Dropped their front one so they anchored exactly where they wanted with no swing and could adjust as needed.

Be a handy little add to a little boat if you don’t have one

Yep Ducky we have two anchors in the boat, but do you reckon I can teach the other guys in the boat how to do that ... they just don't seem to get it.
Seems self explanatory doesn't it? But for some reason, they can't get the concept of letting out rope then pulling back on that once you're dropped the front pick ... oh well.
Would love the electric motor, but being 3 blokes in a tinnie - it would make it even tighter.
Thanks for the tip

Instead of pulling the boat using your winch handle .Use a spare handle. No pressure on the pawl of the winch
