Replacing the Windlass on a Corsair

Post by IOLANTHE » Thu Mar 08, 2018 5:43 pm

Hello, Grateful for some help with my Corsair Hull No 86, Iolanthe.
The SL Horizon Express fitted on build is showing serious signs of stress. We cruise Turkish and Greek waters and usually anchor at least twice a day over several months sometimes more often. We are therefore looking to replace this equipment; we are no longer as strong as we were and its essential to have something total reliable.
Has anyone had any experience with changing a SL Windlass? We are looking for a robust equipment that will require minimal alterations to the deck layout, particularly deck penetrations. Any advice would be wonderful particularly pointing us to possible make / models.
Thank you
