I am considering buying
a new Lewmar
and would love to hear some INFORMED reports on it, good or bad. I have a 1988 Hunter
45' Legend that displaces about 27,000. My ground tackle consists of 300' of 5/16" HT chain with a 55 lb. Rocna
. I normally anchor
in 15'-30' of water
but occasionally find myself in a 40'-50' anchorage and need the windlass
to easily handle the task. Note...my idea of an "informed" opinion would be someone who has owned, does own or who has been aboard a vessel using this windlass. Couch sailors need not pipe in. Thanks in advance.
