I've been wanting a windlass for years. My issue was my boat is an '87 and the bow deck is think with the pulpit actually coming over the top which made my mounting area about 2 1/4 think. I originally purchased the 900w, but had to get the 1000w just for the extra thickness. But that one fit great. This comes with everything you need including bow peddles (which most don't include). I purchased an aftermarket "remote control" on Amazon for about $50 which easily connected to the Five-Oceans relay, so I didn't even put the bow pedals or dash switch on, but at least they include it. The windlass seems like good quality stainless, and the motor seems very durable. Mounting was easy EXCEPT on the 1000W be careful, the template indicates the centerline (rope travel), but also includes an "arrow", so make sure you go by the "dotted line" not the arrow! I went by the arrow, and actually mounted mine a little too far to the right - and once you drill the holes, it's game over.. no re-do. Luckily it's not too far off and does not affect the performance at all... it bothers my OCD though to see the anchor line slightly crooked, but I'll get over that! I'm in Michigan, off Lake Erie and Detroit River. Our anchor spots are shallow (anywhere from 5' to 20' feet) so they grow a lot of seaweed. It's nothing to have 200 pounds of muck and seaweed on my anchor here, and this windlass pulls it up without even a slight struggle. I love it.
The windlass worked well once the feeder cables were upgraded. The circuit breaker that was provided was defective and had to be replaced. The installation instruction's diagram is not correct suggesting the breaker should be on the negative side.
Heavy-duty, very nice ,strong.
Quite impressive, better than my original Maxwell windlass.!,
