Lewmar Pro Series 1000 Windlasses are chosen by more boat builders than any other manufacturer. Designed for boats 20 to 45 feet, the Pro 1000H is easy to install, with a 100 percent 316 stainless steel windlass housing for the ultimate in corrosion protection and durability. A manual recovery system is standard.
Each Pro 1000H includes: windlass, base gasket seal, fast-mounting studs, installation wrench, rocker switch, contactor, and circuit breaker. Accepts 5/16 inch chain.
14-16 mm or 9/16" - 5/8" 3 strand medium lay or 8 plait nylon
Is this the free fall model?
the free fall model is not this one, it is the ProFish. This is the more basic "Pro Series" which can be upgraded later to the ProFish type. Freefall allows a fast vertical drop over wrecks and rocks, a feature sought after by fisherman and divers for precise locating of a spot on depth sounder.We do sell the ProFish also, in both 700 and 1000
Before you buy this windlass, do some research on water intrusion on a Pro 1000. Not a good seal at all between the two halves that make up the body of the windlass. Barely 1/8" of an inch of mating surface with what appears to be silicone and no gasket. Water gets into the housing and will short out the motor. After numerous emails with Lewmar they finally sent me a new motor, but voided the warranty on my 4 1/2 year old windlass. I re-assembled it with a gasket I made, and ran a bead of caulking over the joint between the halves. It's not pretty, but hopefully will keep the water out. Very poor design of the mating surfaces. Wouldn't buy another one
