      Horizontal Windlasses

      Windlasses are used to weigh anchor and are available in either vertical or horizontal versions. Which you’ll need depends on a number of factors including the size of your boat, size of the anchor, the type of anchor rode you use, and the size of your anchor locker. While not as popular as their vertical cousins, the horizontal windlasses mechanisms are in plain view on deck, and only the chain pipe and wire are in the hold below deck. Horizontal windlasses are the best choice when your boat has a small chain locker and generally require a minimum fall of about a foot.

      Wholesale Marine carries a great selection of windlasses from Lewmar Marine, Maxwell, and Powerwinch. Maxwell’s HRC10-8 Windlass is state-of-the-art and features a patented Wave Design™ to allow for a wide range of different pitches. Another sound choice is Lemar’s H2G Windlass that features reliable worm gearbox technology for years of reliable use. Budget conscious boaters will like Lewmar’s Pro-Sport 550 Windlass which is designed to work well with rope or chain applications. Fisherman prefer the Sportfish 450 from Powerwinch, which quickly deploys the anchor when a school is spotted.

      Wholesale Marine Has the Windlasses You Need

      To recap, horizontal windlasses from Wholesale Marine are easy to install, heavy duty, safe, and feature an aesthetically pleasing design. Their key features include:

      • Most of the windlass unit is on the deck.
      • Installation is easy.
      • They are recommended for boats with small anchor lockers.
      • Their rode enters the gypsy, makes 90 degree turn and feeds into the anchor locker.
      • A minimum fall of 12-inches is recommended to have sufficient gravity to pull the rode down into the locker.
