  • Marine-grade pretreated alloy casing, powder coated and finished with a two component white polyurethane paint.


Maxwell windlasses must be used in conjunction with a chain stopper or snubbing device to take the load off the windlass while laying at anchor. The chain stopper and alternative snubbing system can also be used to secure the anchor in the fully raised position while under way.
