    hello bavaria folk,
    have any of you fitted a anchor windlass on a bavaria 30 if so which one and where, also we find her quite light in the wind when moving about in marinas, have any of you bothered with bow thruster, i am sure you will all agree they are a brilliant little boat and we have had ours from new for 4 years now so if anyone has any ideas, suggestions on them please pass them on

    Last season I fitted a Lofrans Royal manual windless .A special mounting plate was made in stainless steel backed with marine ply and it all fits together with Delta anchor in the locker.I have the same problem with our 30 in the marina.She does catch the wind at low speed making manoving difficult in a comfined space.A bow thruster would be useful.
