Looking at a new windlass
. 3/8" chain. Vertical. I think I'm down to a choice between the Quick Argo and the Maxwell
I really like the Maxwell's geared manual retrieval and great reputation.
I like the Quick's mostly stainless above deck
, IP67 waterproof motor
, and hinged hawser pipe cover. It has a good manual retrieval too but not geared.
Both have 3 year warranties. The Quick is a little cheaper. I looked at this Quick at Annapolis
and was very impressed by the heavy duty construction. Much heavier than their smaller models.
Normally I'd go with more established player - Maxwell
- but I really like stainless on deck
Does anyone have any thoughts about this choice?
