OK that makes more sense. I can see your problem in that there's not enough holding the anchor winch down. Mine's bolted through the non-movable deck, you have yours on a very movable hatch lid.

I would definitely add a snubbing line to that. Not sure what you have aft of that anchor winch but a line run from the anchor, through a snubber and then back in a V to the winches in the cockpit. A good hard snag could snap that samson post off and pull the whole lot overboard. Ask me some time how I know.

When there are winches in the cockpit I'll give that some consideration.

Not likely to break that Samson post, I think the concrete below the bow would collapse first, or the chain would snap (as happened recently). In fact that's one of the reasons I needed to haul out.
