I am having shoulder surgery next week and the wife wants a windlass for hauling anchor and the shrimp pot if possible. Does anyone know of a windlass that will accomodate 1/4" and 3/8" inch rope (open capstan?) that is "affordable", does not draw a huge amount of amps? I have a 11lb bruce anchor and 1 shrimp pot but will get a 2nd pot if I can find a suitable windlass.
I have done some searching on the net but have not come upon anything I find suitable yet.
Thanks for any input.
