SeaWolf Windlass Parts, Online or in SoCal

Ok I feel stupid.



That little hole through the windlass clutch handle is for tieing it onto the boat yeah?



I didn't.




Started thinking about this at about the same time I was deciding it was too late to dive through the lifelines as it headed south. Oh well I thought, I'll tie the new one down, the water looks kinda cold and murky and I know the bottom where we were dropping is pretty muddy so I skipped diving for it and decided to hit west marine instead.

Now I find its a little hard to track down parts for the windlass! While I'm at it I'd like the part I've read about that allows you to wind the anchor up by hand too.

Any ideas?

Thanks Gord

Now why couldn't I find that? I was just starting to think about getting one made. That was a very expensive piece of string that I didn't tie that thing on with!

Didn't turn up at the top for me, though now I know the address I see it there a few entries down. Anyway - having emailed them John kindly replied with a load of exttra info on the windlass that I didn't have (the manual and further documentation updates).

He was wondering if Latitude38 is a good magazine to advertise in for the west coast - my response being that it gets a large number of readers but is pretty commercial heavy. Anyone have any opinions on this?

Sea Wolf windlass help!

I just got a boat with a sea wolf windlass. it's not working, stuck with the anchor full up and tight. I found a schematic online, but does anyone have a user manual for this winch? I don't know anything about it, like is this a free-falling windlass? how do I take the tension off the chain so I can free up the anchor.

Steve

In my opinion, Latitude38 is the gold standard among west coast sailing rags. It enjoys a large, informed, well-heeled readership, especially in the Bay Area, but all along the coast, as well.

Hi Steve,

Assuming its like mine there is (looking forwards) a clutch wheel to the right of the chain guide (on the end of the spindle). Stick a piece of metel / substantial screw driver etc through the slots and rotate clockwise to free the clutch and let the chain run free.

In the pictures here the clutch is closest the camera:

Sorry about the late reply!
