Maxwell Nilsson V3000 Windlass

Does anyone have a Maxwell Nilsson V3000?

Came with the boat and its missing the stripper arm.
I need a photo or drawing of the stripper so I can make a new one.

Already contacted Nilsson and the strippers aren't available anymore.

Cheers
Doug

Re: Maxwell Nilsson V3000 Windlass

Doug,

Wish I'd gotten this on Friday. It will be a couple of weeks before we get down. HOWEVER. They were all custom made and fitted. We JUST went through this with ours. I'd suggest that you pull your windlass, crack it open and drain and fill it, since you have it out. Ours was nasty.

I'd suggest that you get your hands on a piece of stainless bar the right thickness and width. Then cut it to fit. You want the stripper point to be RIGHT at the windlass, just clearing the middle. Then drill your holes for the 2 securing bolts. There are diagrams online, but really, you want to specifically fit it for your windlass.

Great thanks for info.

Wasn't sure how far to go towards windlass with it.

If you can I would still love some photos. We are having jam issues and the one of the other causes is the naval pipe having too much friction (I think) so the chain isn't failing by gravity. So a photo or two of your setup would be a great comparison.

Thanks for the help.
Doug

Re: Maxwell Nilsson V3000 Windlass

Doug,

We had a similar problem that had a couple of different causes:

1) The bolt holes in the stripper had become enlarged,

2) The windlass had been installed on a teak pad, that was failing

3) The stripper was well worn.

4) The deck under the windlass was rotting from a lousy install where they put the windlass bolts through a balsa core.

We removed the windlass, pad, and cut the deck open. We filled the deck with epoxy, and placed the top of the deck on it. Then we made a pad from starboard to mount the windlass and hawse pipe on. We mounted the windlass and then re-aligned (both horizontally & vertically) the hawse pipe so the stripper was as close to the barrel of the windlass as possible. We had the stripper welded up and redrilled the holes.

Re: Maxwell Nilsson V3000 Windlass

G'day, Latis. Sorry, I'm not currently on the boat, or I would take a photo of an old bent one that I have. I have recently replaced windlass with a Maxwell V3500.

An FYI, since your windlass is mostly likely at least 20 years old, you might want to check the status of the gear housing box located below the deck. These have a tendancy to fail over time. Check for corrosion around the mounting thru deck mounting bolts. These gear box housings are also not available any longer, but you might be able to find an old one or have small casting company fab you a new one if needed.

Cheers

I took mine out and re-fitted it a couple years ago. I still haven't re-installed it, but I do have some diagrams on it that I can scan and get to you if you want it. Just give me a jingle and we can get that to you.

Re: Maxwell Nilsson V3000 Windlass

As I understand there was a couple of different versions of the 3000.
Is the naval pipe integrated to the deckplate or separate ?
Horizontal motor is V3000/2 and effectively the same as the current Maxwell 3500, the current 6980 stripper is listed as the replacement but it is dimensionally different (5mm thick instead of 6, 108 long Vs 113, 20wide vs 25)

if integrated the stripper should be as attached.
