Thanks again for the answer. 
Apologies for not adding more info about me and my boat, I will do!
Was definitely not my intention to be rude, thanks for mentioning it  :)

Hi Gian PaoloSmile I am just a grumpy old sailor, and sometimes a little rough with the words. I will try to be a little nicer in the future. I look forward to see more information on your boat.
Here in Denmark we are often visited by dutch sailors, and Freya has visited Holland twice. Last time I had to turn the boat at Alpen a/d Rijn because two cranes lost the leaf of the bridge into the channel.
Good wind!

After looking at the info you sent, I checked: current chain on my boat is 10mm.
Thus following Lewmar advice on their guide I should go for a different model. Then all options come together and I get even more confused: vertical or horizontal? Quick, Lewmar or Lofrans? 
From the descriptions I find it seems that some have a motor underneat, some have it embedded in the metal body (can it be?). Chain is 16m+line, can I add extra chain with a connector and will it still work with the windlass? My plan is to use it for navigation on the east coast of UK coming summer.

(hope the signature is updated)

I have 55 meters of 8mm chain, and I have moved the Lewmar just as the photo from Landlocked.
This model only works with 8mm chain, and as I recall, the chains breaking strenght is 4,5 tons.
One solution for you is to use the 10mm chain in the stern, and then buy some 8mm for the bow.
If you use line in the end of the chain, it has to be of the same strenght as the chain.
Another solution is to buy a model that uses 10mm chain.
Chain-connectors I believe will be the weakest link of the chain.
I have no experience with other brands of winches.

Quite some years ago, Landlocked made a manual for his boat Kerkyra for chartering.
I have it still, and new Hanse 400-owners may find it useful.
If you are confident with manualslib.com, you can get it there as Kerkyra Hanse 400E manual.

My Gypsy was jammed and and i managed to free it with a good old fashion tap ( or two) with a rubber hammer.
It blew the main 80amp fuse, cannot find a trip switch ? any ideas  - changed the fuse and  now works fine but it should have a trip somewhere ?

When telling about the 80amp fuse, I assume that you refer to the automatic curcuit breaker (70A), which is reset by lifting a small arm - no change of fuse required??? Take a look at the picture in page one of this thread.
If you read the link to the Lewmar winch, you will see,  that a 3A fuse is inserted in the connection to the remote control. In the picture on page one, it is placed alongside the contactor (yellow).
My boat is manufactured in 2006, later models may have a different setup, but I doubt that the automatic curcuit breakers are changed to antique burn-over fuses?
The route of 12V from battery to anchorwinch is this:
Battery->Main curcuit breaker->70A Auto curcuit breaker->Contactor->Winch.
The contactor is  triggered by wire from the remote like this: White/yellow=up, white/black=down.

I have traced the wiring and cannot a trip. I fitted a new fuse and it now works. I think i shold fit an inline 50/70amp trip as a failsafe .
Thanks for the advice

Hi Derek
I see that Hanse has changed the fuse setup quite a bit., so I should not have been so stiff.
My anchorwinch is a Lewmar Pro Series 1000 (700W), and it has a 70A automatic current breaker, which has never been triggered. So the workload must be less than (12V*70A) = 840W.
In the Lewmar manual which has a link on page one of this thread, there is a diagram, which shows that the motor power is 700W, and the normal current draw is 50A, and the breaker/fuse is 70A.
As you write, maybe you can mount a 70 or 75A automatic current breaker, because changing the old-fashioned 80A fuse is time-consuming if you need the winch to work in a crucial situation.
