I apologize in advance if this subject has been beat to death, but here it goes!
I'm finally upgrading my Chain/Windlass on my boat
. I have a CT38 performance cruiser that weighs in at about 17,000 lbs. I have just bought 5/16 HT chain and I'm now focused on the windlass
up till now has narrowed it down to the Lewmar
H3, the Lofrans
Tigris and I've been considering the Maxwell
HRC-10 or HWC-1500. I would seem to gravitate towards the Tigris, but have read about controller issues on other posts. The Maxwell
windlasses are new to me, anyone with experience here would certainly be of benefit to me. I need to stay under $3000.00 US
Thanks in advance.
