Having said that, I think they're good (no pun intended) rec boat units, at least where I operate. Good factory support is excellent.
Thanks for the feedback. As I have yet to install and use a Good Windlass, I'm going by what I've been told so, I do appreciate real user experience.
Did you experience the slipping after the refurb or did it come on with time? In speaking with the factory my understanding is that slipping could indicate the unit needs servicing and/or that the rode is worn; an issue given that it is an all rope (not chain) rode.
Again, thanks for the feedback and I'll be sure to post a comment (good or bad) after my installation when I have some personal experience.
