Hey guys
I am in need of a windlass for the boat i am building

I am looking at the Lewmar Profish 1000 free fall
just wondering how you like it for performance and reliability ?

Secondly there is an internet site selling the windlass and related electrical installation parts for under $800.00 while other sites offer the same windlass and parts kit for $1200.00

Anybody use Tacticalwholesale.com price sounds too good to be true

Thanks

WE have had to replace ours once in three years. It works great otherwise. Just have to make sure to wash the thing out every trip and lube the clutch assembly once per year.

Mine lasted about 4 years before i had to replace it.As you can see from the pic it failed at the motor mount(lower right) which may have been my bad.When you get to the chain you dont want to be going WFO and have the chain catch and lock it up.
When i got the new one I pulled the cover off and added a ton more grease in there to try and prevent all the corrosion you can see.The grease you see in pic is all the factory puts in there.
