As said above, my 1998 Hunter 410 has a Lewmar model RMI or RM1 50\F (hard to read) electric windlass. I have attached pics too. Over this past season the motor would stop working. Sometimes repeated press/release of the up/down switch would move it, other times it would take a...
Corrosion has eaten the Sprint Atlantic "B" down to nothing and I'm looking for a replacement windlass.
The British supplier of S/L parts has been contacted but I'm looking for a new one first.
I've spec'd the Lewmar V2, but the problem is the baseplate. It was specially made...
I am new to this forum and in the next couple of weeks a first time Hunter owner.
I am buying a 2007 Hunter 33. I’m stepping up from a contessa 26 so its a big move but needless to say very excited.
It has almost everything I want including after this brutal summer AC. I am amazed...
We have a Beneteau Oceanis 40CC that currently has a Horizontal, on-deck, electric,heavy duty windlass that pulls both road and chain. Since the Leroy Somer motor in it is has seen better days, (the mechanic said it is unfixable), we would like to find a similar model, or comparable...
I'm anchored at Lighthouse Reef in Belize, which is about 30 miles offshore & my Muir VR1000R012E windlass stripped the worm gear. It's pulled up many anchors in it's 21 years, so it owes us nothing. Luckily there's a dive resort here with 10 KBps Internet, so at least I can do a bit of...
When I asked my local boat yard, they said that the existing (shallow) chain well would need to be cut out to create a vertical drop for the chain. A new deeper well would be created in front of the V Berth. Is there a windlass that can do the job with the existing well?
We just purchased a 47.7, and trying to replace the anchor chain. All I can see on the windlass is "Leroy Somer" and they seems to be out of the windlass business. Does anyone know what chains does the stock windlass gypsy accept? Will it work with Acco G43 3/8 chain? Or with G70 3/8?
I have an ODay 28 and am planning a retirement trip down the ICW from Annapolis to Mobile Bay Alabama departing September 2017. I went to a seminar on the trip (to Florida) and got ideas but it sparked many questions I want to put forth to this site for inputs/recommendations:
1. Get a heater...
I have a 1992 Legend 43 and want to install a windlass. Does anyone know which to get and how to install it? Bow anchor locker appears to be designed for simple installation of the designed windlass but I do not know hwat the designed windlass looks like? Can anyone help me.
Helping a friend to source for info/ideas and windlass for his H280 (circa 1997).
Anchor well is really shallow ...actually more like anchor pan.
Has any H280 owners fitted a windlass to his/her boats? Photos and information would be of great help. Thank you.
I am trying to trouble shoot a non-working windlass(QUICK). Worked fine then letting out anchor. A few hours later when going to pull anchor up It didn't work. I have checked with meter that remote works fine. Have power to solenoid (QUICK T501), but triggering remote does nothing, solenoid...
