As shown, bought for my yacht but never fitted. After a very close shave last year in the three weeks we were allowed
to sail for three weeks, when I was getting the anchor up in a NE gale BY HAND at 2am
, I have decided that as this winch
will not get the anchor up
as quickly as I need
when I sail single handed, that I need to
fit a 1000W electric one at £!500 odd.
I think I can pull the anchor in by hand quick but as I sail single handed
I cannot juggle engine and anchor as I like so I think I need a remote winch as even though this is Hy Speed, it probably won;t be as quick as by hand ( I am very well built and do by hand.)
works fine, though since sitting around
when I bought it
in my garage, the paint is peeling a bit more
as shown, it was a bit flakey when I bought it from a chandlers in Cowes.
It never came with a handle so you will need one but it works with a screwdriver for demo and test.
Any bit of metal flat profile rod will do .
I was going to give it a thorough overhaul and suggest you do too and all parts
are available from eBay
it is heavy, though I can
box it up and send
it to mainland UK and will get a price for this if you enquire.
For people in Brighton Marina , I would be pleased to meet at
Ditchling Car Parlk (NT) which is half way for me.
