Comments about Lewmar Pro-Sport 550 Windlass:

Used this windlass twice. Once in 60' and the other in 15' when it failed. Part actually broke while letting rope out.
The boat has all new rope and chain as per specs of the windlass.
Failed part is cheap plastic.
Told replacement unit will take two + weeks to get here. Great when 4th of July is coming fast.

              I bought this product for its reputation and good value for the money. Installation was straight forward and simple. Installation notes/diagrams are good, was surprised by all the languages in the booklet. The windlass works like a champ. Very happy with it so far.
