Product Description

Works with all Lewmar windlasses equipped with a control box/solenoid. Three-button version works with a single windlass. Five-button version can operate a windlass and a bow thruster. Kits include required receivers for windlass or thruster. Remote kits are easily retrofitted to existing installations. Remote key fobs float and are waterproof to IP67. A proprietary encryption scheme prevents false triggering from any other device or similar fob. Optional 10m Remote Antenna Kit will improve reception when reception is poor or distance to the windlass/thruster is long.

NOTE: Previous generation Pro Sport 550, Pro Series 700, Pro Fish 700 and V700 windlasses require Dual-Direction Control Box/Solenoid, Model 228861 and Guarded Rocker Switch, Model 4730677 for wireless remote installation.

Not what I expected from LEWMAR

      Comments about Lewmar Three-Button Wireless Remote (Windlass Only):

      I was looking forward to this unit so I could operate the windlass from both the foredeck and the tuna tower (without running new wires).
      First issue: Opening up the receiver unit I was disappointed to see little to no water/moisture protection for the electronics board- no coatings no nothing. The limit of water seal was a small o-ring around the base. In my experience this board will not last long in a tropical marine environment. Then my mind started to worry about worst case if the electronics corroded and malfunctioned- windlass either releasing the anchor or worse- trying to retrieve it when already up and taking out my pulpit.
      Second major issue- from what I subsequently read you have to keep power to the unit otherwise it reportedly loses the program link to the Tx unit. This was a definite non-starter for me since I leave windlass breaker off unless I'm actually using it. Had I read more reviews before ordering- I would not have.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Excellent delivery and local returns were absolutely no problem. Easy returns are single biggest advantage for me on Oahu.

      Installed two of these on two different boats, one is a regal 52 and the other is a small center console. Works perfect! Couldnt be happier with the product.
