What is an anchor windlass?
It’s a device installed at the bow of the boat to lift and drop the anchor. The rope and chain is fed through the chain wheel and winds down into the anchor well.

Why install an anchor windlass?
The answer is simple! Ask yourself: Why am I still lifting weights, when all it takes is a push of a switch?

The Pro 710 series Horizontal Windlasses are specially designed for smaller size boats,
Design Features: Compact size, easy operation and easy self-installation.

-----------------------------------------------------------

At Precision Marine we have working setup to show customers exactly how a anchor winch operates.

The 2 photos here show the 2 most popular types of anchor winches in operation.

South Pacific’s flag ship model, the Pro 710 series, is the only anchor windlass for boats under 6 metres. With a maximum working load of 120kg and swift retrieval speed, it’s sure to make anchoring hassle-free and safe.

Power out model v dual function free fall model

Power out: This function pays out the electric power from the motor and you will need to keep pressing the ‘down’ switch until the anchor reaches the seabed.
Free fall: In this function, when you press the ‘down’ button, the clutch will open and the anchor will drop to the bottom. Once at the bottom,the clutch will re-engage automatically when you remove your hand from the switch. Guaranted precision anchoring so you will never miss that great fishing spot!

NOTE: The dual free fall option ( F or FS model) allows you to select between the power out and free fall functions.There is a large nylon screw on the right hand side of the winch that by turning it allows you to access either freefall or power out.

Nylon gypsy vs stainless steel gypsy

This depends on the frequency of use.

  • If you will not be using your windlass frequently, we suggest the nylon gypsy.
  • If you will be using your windlass frequently, we recommend the stainless steel gypsy.
  • NB. It is recommended especially with the nylon gypsy that you tie off the anchor when traveling over water and on road as the vibration and drag of the anchor causes the gypsy and torque limiter to wear prematurely.

Our gypsies are capable of taking both rope and chain.

The Pro 710 series are our most popular models, catering for every budget and boating needs.

NOTICE: The right rope for anchor winches:

   We at Precision Marine have personally experienced great variation in some nylon rope being sold on the Australian market. Some is not a suitable rope for many anchor winches.
   We have tested some nylon rope and found it to jamb in the gypsy while retrieving the anchor so be careful.
   When making a purchase be sure it is three strand medium lay which is stiffer than some. A good test is to hold out a 300mm section horizontal with two hands and on letting go one end it shouldn't sag past 45 degrees.


   It has been brought to our attention that some owners of South Pacific winches that are using nylon rope with a swivel experience issues of the rope getting caught in the gypsy towards the end of the anchor line on retrieval. Our belief is the rope is unwinding slightly making it softer and letting it sink deeper in the gypsy causing catching at the bottom of the winch. I haven't had this problem with the rope we now sell. Sample of problem rope below.

Above picture illustrates the "pinched" section of rope
usually the outcome of a nylon rope being too soft.


 NYLON ROPE - 3 STRAND LAID
This white nylon 3 strand rope is around twice as strong as silver rope.This allows a smaller diameter rope to be used which proves cost effective. Nylon rope is the strongest and most elastic synthetic fibre UV resistant rope. It is easy to handle, has great elasticity,shock absorbtion and abrasion resistance.Nylon rope is ideal for mooring lines, towing slings, commercial fishing applications and as a high quality, easy to handle anchor rope.
