WINDLASSES VESSELS UP TO 25 TONNES

 

SMALL GEARED WINDLASSES

The smallest windlass we currently make as a standard product is the No1.N, suitable for boats up to around 15 tonnes displacement. Standard gypsies fitted to this size of windlass are made to accommodate 8 mm or 10 mm chain. The gearing gives a 3:1 ratio. This should provide ample power for most situations, however this is an extremely robust windlass, and because of this we also offer a 1 metre long ratchet lever which can be fitted in place of the crank handle or hand wheel when maximum power is needed.
