Does anyone have any experience with the Lofrans
Royal manual anchor windlass
?I like the idea of a manual lft,and have no problem pulling anchor with existing S.L. Seahorse when singlehanding
,but the Simpson Lawerence is getting old and tired.My boat is 38ft. ,18000 lbs.,using all chain 5/16 H.T.(150ft.)then rode
,anchor is 50lb.Manson plow (I don't like dragging).I always motor
up over anchor before raising.Can I get away with this Lofrans
,even though it is a little undersized,I have heard they are very reliable and durable.They recomend no larger than 35ft.A poster named Sullivan ,on here, said he worked his hard with no problems.There seems to be no other options for manual.
