The U.S. importer of the popular Lofrans windlass has given us an additional price break. Instead of us holding the line and making a few more bucks, we're passing the savings on to you. I recently installed the 1500 pound bull "Tigress" on my Down East 38. I've now got about 30 days use on it and have grown very attached to it. They come complete with 2 foot switches and necessary controllers. I didn't want to drill a bunch of holes in my for deck for the switches and personally I think they are dangerous. If the main switch accidently left on and someone steps on the switch their could be problems. I keep an "up-down" switch and cable in a locker. When ready to use the windlass I plug it in, lead the cable out a hatch or port light and am ready to go. The windlass can be ordered with a 1/4" or 5'/16" or 3/8" BBB or Hi-Test wildcat. Shop the internet-grind on your local ship chandler and then call or e-mail us for the best price available in the U.S. for this nice looking, 12 volt windlass. Pictures is the Lofrans on the fore deck of my little sloop........
