Windlass frees mates from weighty anchor chores

Oct 7, 2008 The ideal windlass combines superb performance with elegance.  Packed with patented technologies, the Liberty Rope/Chain Windlass from Maxwell America achieves both while freeing mates from strenuous anchoring tasks.
           
Innovative Maxwell technology ensures trouble-free operation.  The balance force pressure arm eliminates snags, while the rope/chain gypsy applies maximum grip on the rope splice.

The Liberty windlass offers the option of simple emergency/manual operation.  A lever on the side of the winch is turned counter clockwise to drive the chain or rope up to an impressive 5:1 ratio, allowing almost anyone to weigh anchor without difficulty.
           
Available in low profile or Maxgrip capstan versions, both have a release button on top that allows periodic servicing without the need for tools.  The rope/chain gypsy and pressure arm assemblies are interchangeable between the 1700 and 2500 models.
           
This superior quality windlass comes standard with a dual-direction solenoid pack, circuit breaker/isolator panel, up/down remote panel, and manual crank/clutch release handle.  The "Quick Fit" deck plate allows easy retrofitting without taking the windlass apart. 
           
With a three-year warranty, Liberty RC1700 has a starting retail price of $5,665 and the RC2500 starts at $6,190.
