Sailing BoatsSimpson LawrenceUnited KingdomCurrency GBPAs 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.)
The SL works fine, though since sitting around when I bought it in my garage, the paint is peeling 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 sellers
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….*
