For sale is a lightly used 500 watt Maxwell windlass.
I removed rthis from my fresh water Catalina 34.
I can say lightly used because the windlass was wired backwards when we bought the bought so being mounted horizontally, the gypsy pulled from below making it nearly impossible to use.
Therefore I doubt it ever was used much.
The photos show it as well as possible.
There is no corrosion inside and it still had ample grease where required when I dismantled the thing.
In case you are unaware, a DC motor wired backwards like this one just turns the other direction and does not harm the motor in any way.
The windlass is packed in a Maxwell box from the new windlass so will ship wel and will arrive in good shape.
Asking $300 or best offer plus shipping from 49686.
The weight is about 28 pounds.
To sweeten the pot I can include an 8x10 glossy photo of a couple Bahamian racing Class C boats during the 5Fs Regatta in 2009.
