What's there to say? And the lack of opinions suggests a lack of basis for comparison, perhaps meaning that few other CF members have used a Lofrans anchor windlass
(or perhaps those 143 CF members were startled by your use of the term 'anchor winch'??).
Where is the Lofrans service
support for you? Down to Coomera to Seven Seas Marine
, perhaps? Is that closer or further from Gympie than the equivalent service
centre for Maxwell
(I take my Maxwell
out for a scenic drive down to the Maxwell windlass agent at Manly Boat
Harbour about once every 10 years; last time the service tech replaced the oil
with what he called a mix of grease and oil
that he reckoned would supply better working service than the original oil)
And where are you planning to cruise
? Other than Seven Seas Marine
, the Lofrans website suggests your next nearest centres for parts
and support are Auckland
, NZ, to the SE and Jakarta, ID, to the NW. That's reassuring, no?
You don't need me or anyone else to point you to reviews
, overviews, and hype, right?
