Reviews on Lewmar V3 Windlass...

I am considering buying a new Lewmar V3 windlass 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. 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.
