Lofrans Project 1000 Windlass

Just returned from the Toronto boat show where there was a good deal on a Lofrans Project 1000 windlass, which is the appropriate size for my 38 foot Bristol. Has anyone had experience, either positive or negative, with Lofrans windlasses?

We had a Lofrtans Cayman, 1200watt, horizonatal unit that operated tropuble free for ten years and two trips south. A very good windlass

Good windlass, good parts availability in most places and easy to work on.
