I am very close to taking delivery
of a new Lagoon
400s2 (10 tonnes lightship and my main anchor
will weigh 36 kg). I intend to live aboard full time and expect to be on the pick most of the time. For the first year I will be cruising in the Med.
400s now come with a Quick 1000 watt windlass
I have heard some reports that a more powerful windlass would be better. Some have suggested 1250 watts is more appropriate, one suggested one size bigger than 1250 watts.
I have heard one report that Quick is not a robust brand and I should consider replacing with a Muir or a Lewmar.
I would like to know the opinions of members on this issue, and particularly members with a similar sized boat
usage similar to my expected usage.
