Windlass Replacement

I need to replace a Simpson Lawrence Sprint 900 windless. I would like to find a replacement that would fit the footprint or be larger and fit the bolts already there to make the replacement process much easier. It is for a 46 foot monohull. Any comments?

Re: Windlass Replacement

I like my Lofrans Tigre 1200, particularly the fact that it's both manual and electric. You might consider the next size up. I can't comment on the bolts, but you can download a footprint template, I believe.
