Anchorlift windlass experiences

The gearbox on our 1000w 2007 Quick Antares vertical windless is shot and we're looking for a replacement. All the likely candidates are about $3K or more. Then I stumbled upon Anchorlift and their Mako 1500w model has a similar footprint and is $2200. I haven't seen anything negative about the brand, but OTOH it doesn't seem to get talked about much. Anyone have recent experience with this brand they would like to share? Thanks.

Re: Anchorlift windlass experiences

So no replies to my query but for anyone with a similar question I ultimately decided against ordering the Anchorlift. The primary reason is that the motor has no real protection from seawater in the chain locker, especially the power connections. I asked the company about this and they recommend that you give the motor and gearbox a heavy coating of anti-corrosion spray when installing and refresh it periodically. That might be a good idea anyway but IMO itís not a first line defense against water damage.
