How to choose a Windlass


A Windlass is essentially an electric winch that is installed in the bow of a boat and used for winching up an anchor and anchor rode. There are two main types of Windlasses - Horizontal and Vertical. This refers to the position of the windlass motor. Horizontal windlasses such as the Lofrans Tigres sit above the deck and the motor is horizontal in position. The vertical windlass has a lower profile because the motor is positioned vertically below the deck. The horizontal windlass typically has the gypsy positioned  perpendicular to the deck and the vertical windlass gypsy is positioned parrallel to the deck.
Almost all windlasses come with a solenoid/control box but most do not include the foot switches, circuit breaker, toggle switch or wiring required for a new install. Check the windlass specifications to see what size wire and breaker is required for safe operation. The most common gypsy sizes are 5/16 HT, 3/8 HT and 3/8 BBB. Make sure you know your chain size before ordering the windlass. The chain size/type is typically stamped on the links. Another consideration when choosing a windlass is the motor size or wattage output. Most windlass motors range from 700 watts to 1500 watts for the Lofrans Tigres. You want to make sure you have enough pulling power to raise your anchor and rode.
