Anchor Windlass

Does anyone have any ideas where to find an emergency lever for a Maxwell/ Nilsson HWC700 anchor windlass? I have contacted both Nilsson and Maxwell but they don't carry the unit or have parts for it. If I could get a good picture with deminsions I could make one. A little nervous about dropping anchor and not being able to recover.

RE: Anchor Windlass

Are you referring to the flat bar used to release the cone clutches, as well as raise the anchor if Hulk Hogan is on board? *Mine is basically 1/4" x 2" aluminum with a small cylinder attached that mates up with a slot on the windlass. *I can send you pictures if that would help.

******* The first time I saw this done was when I was fishing out of Whalers Cove, Alaska. The skipper of our 30 ft. boat did this every time we moved from one spot to another. It made retrieving the anchor a snap.

Anchor Windlass

How big/large need the bouy be?* Should have something to do with the rode and anchor?* Hard to see how this would work with an all-chain rode.

RE: Anchor Windlass

Is this your windlass? If so I can make a sketch of that bar for you, but I am on vaca next week so it might be a couple of weeks before you'll get it. Just let me know.

RE: Anchor Windlass

original poster:

If you contact Will Vrooman at Vetus Maxwell:

phone: 443-459-4082
email: wvrooman@vetus.com



You will be speaking with an 'expert' on all things Maxwell. I ran into him at the Seattle boat show this January and he walked me through the entire rebuild process on my vintage 70's horizontal unit.
He also has dimensions, sketches for the emergency handles. He spent his early years in the shop doing repairs and such.



Super helpful, didnt earn a penny from me other than me relating the incredible customer service he gave - which is well deserved advertising.


pic is pre-rebuild.

"Spelt" would that be an all grain buoy Or an extract.

I spilled it or I spilt it. A waste of good grain

RE: Anchor Windlass

Not so fast SD. Spelt has both meanings - the grain, and a form of the verb,'to spell'.

1.
spelt1 Pronunciation:/splt/ past and past participle of spell....an alternative to spelled...

2.
spelt2 Pronunciation:/splt/ noun [mass noun]
an old kind of wheat with bearded ears and spikelets that each contain two narrow grains , not widely grown but favoured as a health food.

Sorry, not trying to play one up - just an interesting fact I guess...

*Yep, I get it.**I guess you are not a home brewer.

The same with to spill something.

*Spilled or spilt.

Spilled milk/ Spilt milk.

RE: Anchor Windlass

Hello MT,


Every once in a while you can find a true expert. Will is 'it' on Maxwell.

Plus he understands customer service - the old fashioned way.


I suspect he will continue to be generous with his help and information for a long time.

I know it convinces me to buy his brand in the future.
