WHY IS IT NECESSARY TO INSTALL AN ANCHOR WINDLASS?
There are two main reasons: SAFETY and UTILITY. The anchor windlass on your vessel allows you to handle different anchoring situations, even the most critical, always under complete safety. Every anchoring operation will be extremely simple, always under complete safety. Every anchoring operation will be extremely simple, fast and firm under your control. No more fear of failing to recover your anchor and every anchoring will be a pleasure. No more heavy and complicated operations. Installing an anchor windlass means making an investment on the safety of your crew and your vessel.
AND WHAT ABOUT A CAPSTAN?
Capstans are normally installed on the stern of the boat for mooring maneuvers. They are equally suitable for recreational boats, fishing and commercial vessels. One or two capstans- de[ending on boat size and displacement- are installed on the boat in conjunction with an anchor windlass. Capstans are monitored by a set of foot switches, leaving your hands free for rope handling. The range of Lofrans capstans is designed for boats from 6 to 45 m (18 to 150′).
