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.

    Comments about Lewmar Pro-Sport 550 Windlass:

    Just had it installed on my 28 foot boat, it broke while lifting up the anchor in 10 foot of water. The lake bottom is sand so I wasn't hung up on anything. I hope the dealer can get a replacement part soon as I'm taking it to the Keys in a couple weeks. I will rate higher if the part arrives soon.

            Product used mostly for anchoring up while fishing or finding a relaxing cove to have lunch.
            Have not experienced any negative things with this product so far.

                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.
