VWC1000 Windlass 5/16" - 3B Chain
The VWC Series of windlasses is designed for automatic (hands-free) handling of chain-only anchor rodes. They have an integral chainpipe and chain stripper built into the windlass body to facilitate jam-free operation, and automatic delivery of the chain to and from the chain locker.
VWC windlasses are available in two formats — a low profile, chainwheel-only version, and one with an added independent capstan for the retrieval of a secondary mostly rope rode, or to assist with docking procedures.
This entries features the chainwheel with capstan version of the VWC. The vertical capstan on VWC windlasses is ideal for multi-use rope hauling as, unlike horizontal capstans, it can handle lines leading from any direction.
