Am thinking of upgrading from my manual Lofrans windlass
to an electric
. Boat is a 34 foot sailboat, have a 33lb original Bruce with 150 chain and 100 rope
, getting older and back is not what it used to be; boats displaces 14000lbs.
Not wealthy so the nice high end windlass
are out, have been looking at the Lewmar
, mainly because I have to have a horizontal model due to deck
configuration and I want a windlass that allows freefall.
So am looking on opinions on windlasses and especially the Lewmar
model, does anyone use or have first hand info about this model. Not totally sold on it yet.
Thanks and am not looking for a debate about manual verses electric
.. thanks again for the comments.
