Yes, force4 quote 70 to Labuan, which as you know is tax free. Very tempting.

70quid? Really? That's dirt cheap me thinks.. One of the online UK shops said something funny like they will send an email after checkout to confirm the shipping, force4 did not mention something like that? Last time I checked windlass shipping prices to Langkawi I recall something like 200 quoted but can't remember details.. Anyways I'd ask them to confirm before payment just to be sure..
You want to sell your H3 to me? my old Goiot aluminum case is almost corroded through due to mounting bolts not having been isolated with nylon washers.

Re: Lewmar H3 Windlass Disassembly help needed

Hi Erik,
You could be right, the price was calculated online, so I guess it might be more in reality. I think if I do go ahead, then I will keep it onboard, wrapped up, until the Lewmar fails. The Lewmar could last a good few more years, the motor is good, and the seals on the gearbox are good, so we will see. Perhaps when I get back to SE Asia in a few years time...

I believe the H3 will work ok for good many years still. The problem might be the corrosion of the aluminum, and imho the paint on the aluminum does not help at all. I would make sure all the SS mounting bolts are isolated from the aluminum case. Also, any SS bolt's or screw's threads into the aluminum should be coated with an isolating lube but im not sure what is the best one to use? Lanolin ok?

Re: Lewmar H3 Windlass Disassembly help needed

Just curious whatever happened on this old thread? I am at the same point of disassembly on my Lewmar H3 windlass. The motor and gearbox is ready to slide out the back of the aluminum housing, but it's very difficult and very tight. I am wondering if the aluminum seal holder needs to be removed with some kind of special tool? Standing by for anyone with info on this thing. By the way the OP is correct, I too had to drill out two of the counter sunk stainless allenhead screws because they were not installed with any kind of corrosion resistant grease. It is hard to imagine a reputable company assembling this windlass knowing it is going to be installed in one of the most corrosion prone areas on a sailing vessel....and not using any galvanic prevention type grease on all the dissimilar metal screws used in the aluminum housing. This has me thinking, that on any new windlass I purchase in the future, I will disassemble it before installing it and reassemble it correctly. 😕

"...I will disassemble it before installing it and reassemble it correctly..."
that would be the ideal course of action with most equipment...
