. On our 24v system they have fitted one of the Quick HRC remotes.
It looks a well made remote and the LED light is surprisingly useful, but when anchoring
almost every night and using a large windlass, the anchor winch
remote has a hard life. I have yet to find a commercial
marine wired remote that can last more than a few years with this type of treatment.
Maybe I have been unlucky, and perhaps the Quick unit will be more reliable, but if/when it fails I will probably change to one of the industrial crane controls.
I have also sourced a very nice industrial crane wireless remote that I will be fitting in the future, but I will report more when I have seen how well it works.
There is a thread on my new boat
build here for anyone that is interested:
