Lewmar's H3 Horizontal Windlass is a good choice for many 30'-45' boats.
Lewmar's H3 winch simplifies installation with its horizontal design. Dependable service is assured by the robust worm drive motor gearbox and sealed case for reduced maintenance and long life in the marine environment. The low-profile design frees up valuable deck space and aluminum and composite maincase reduce weight on the bow. This model comes with a reed switch and magnet fitted as standard for chain counter applications. Operates on 12V DC and includes a 110A circuit breaker, H3 gypsy for 10mm (3/8") chain and guarded up/down rocker switch.
For specifications, installation and replacement parts, see the H2/H3 Windlass Manual.
