I have just installed the third motor
on our 27's Maxwell
Freedom 500 windlass
. The two before it rusted through and died.
I know it's an inexpensive windlass
and you get what you pay for, but I wonder if anyone here has found a spray or manually applied lubricant that worked to protect their belowdeck windlass motor
site recommends CRC-3097, a Kiwi product I guess because I have been unable to find it. I tried a spray-on sort of wax on the last motor, but doubt it helped much. I`m tempted to slap on some heavy grease.
Appreciate any suggestions.
