New lightweight, powerful and compact windlass made especially for the demanding conditions of rivers and the sea. Perfect for boaters with limited space underneath the deck, or with a deck above 2" (50mm) thick because the entire windlass mounts above the boat’s deck, as opposed to some of it being concealed under the deck. Highly polished 316 stainless-steel body and internal parts are stainless steel as well. Works with 1/4" HT chain only or 1/2" braided or twisted rope/chain combinations. Low amp draw and easy to install.
