Can the anchor windlass handle rope? I have an anchor winch on my boat which doesnt care if its winding up chain or rope!
without zipwake it navigates better

Danilo of course the Zipwake is not helping now with all that weight on the bow. Once you get her trimmed out properly then you can use the Zipwake, looks like a nice system. I would not mess with the motor placement, unless you do not have the ventilation plate even with the keel. The bow should come up on plane and the Zipwake's will be needed.
