Lofrans Kobra Windlass - needs work

Lofrans Kobra Windlass

Installed new in 2002. This is the 12v 1000w model. It works electrically. The problem with it is the bolts that hold the stripper in place have pulled out and the body of the windlass is damaged there. This happened about 4 years ago and I repaired it. It happened again about a week ago and I decided not to try to repair it and instead replace it.

This is a horizontal windlass. Port side capstan, Starboard side chain wheel. If you look at the pictures you can see where the problem is. The stripper is included, just not in the picture. It is held in place with 2 bolts. Both bolt holes need to be repaired

Only the windlass is being sold, not the control box nor the foot buttons. The original manual is included.

Will sell with or without the chain wheel 5/16 HT.

With chain wheel - $500.00 obo
Without chain wheel - $450 obo

Currently Vero Beach FL, but will be moving on as soon as the new windlass arrives and I install it. Will be traveling south in FL for the next few weeks with stops in Lake Worth and Key West. Shipping can be arranged for additional $$. The new one is identical and the shipping charges from New England to FL is $75. That may give you and idea of what it might cost shipping to you.

Lower price!

After researching a little more I realized the price is a little too high. And I decided to install the new control box with my new windlass, so the control box is now included.

New price - $300 obo with chain wheel. $250 obo without chain wheel.
