3- Safety Notice

      IMPORTANT: Read these notes before continuing. 

3.1 Windlass general

At all times it is the responsibility of the boat user to ensure that the anchor and rode are properly stowed for 

the prevailing sea conditions. This is particularly important with high-speed powerboats, because an anchor 

accidentally deploying while under way can cause considerable damage. An anchor windlass is mounted in the 

most exposed position on a vessel and is thus subject to severe atmospheric attack resulting in a possibility of 

corrosion in excess of that experienced with most other items of deck equipment. As the windlass may only be 

used infrequently, the risk of corrosion is further increased. It is essential that the windlass is regularly exam-

ined, operated and given any necessary maintenance.
Please ensure that you thoroughly understand the operation and safety requirements of the windlass before 

commencing the installation. Only persons who are completely familiar with the controls and those who have 

been fully made aware of the correct use of the windlass should be allowed to use it. If there is any doubt of how 

to install or operate this unit please seek advice from a suitably qualified engineer.

•  Windlasses used incorrectly could cause harm to 

equipment or crew.

•  Windlasses should be used with care and treated 

with respect.

•  Boating, like many other activities can be hazardous.  

Even the correct selection, maintenance and use of 

proper equipment cannot eliminate the potential for 

danger, serious injury or death.

•  Lewmar windlasses are designed and supplied for 

anchor control in marine applications and are not to 

be used in conjunction with any other use.

•  Keep limbs, fingers, clothing and hair clear of 

windlass and anchor rope/chain and anchor during 

operation. Severe bodily harm would result.

•  Ensure there are no swimmers or divers nearby 

when dropping anchor.

•  When the Windlass is not in use the anchor must 

be tied off onto a cleat or equivalent strong point to 

prevent damage to the boat.

•  Windlass must not be used as the sole means of  

securing the anchor to the bow fitting especially 

under storm conditions.  Anchors should be  

independently secured to prevent accidental  

release.

•  Classification Societies require that a vessel lying at 

anchor must have its anchor rope/chain secured to a 

chain stopper or other suitable independent strong 

point.

A windlass should never be used as a mooring bollard, the anchor rode MUST be secured to a mooring cleat, 

chain stopper or other designated strong point.  Using the windlass to secure the rode will damage the windlass.

•  Do not use windlass for ANY purpose other than 

deployment and recovery of anchor.

•  Do not wrap chain around a capstan barrel or drum 

where fitted.

•  A circuit breaker/isolator should always be used 

with this windlass to protect the motor and cables 

from overheating and damage.

•  Always switch off this windlass at the circuit 

breaker/isolator when not in use.

•  It is the unavoidable responsibility of the owner or 

master or other responsible party to assess the risk 

of any operation on the vessel.

•  Windlass must not be operated whilst under the 

influence of alcohol or drugs.

3.2 Fitting

•  This equipment must be installed and operated in 

accordance with the instructions contained in this 

manual. Failure to do so could result in poor product 

performance, personal injury and/or damage to your 

boat.

•  Consult the boat manufacturer if you have any doubt 

about the strength or suitability of the mounting 

location.

3.3 Electrical

•  Make sure you have switched off the power before 

you start installing this product.

•  This product requires installation by a suitably 

qualified electrical engineer.

 

⚠ WARNING!

4- Installation

4.2 Accessories

Use only genuine Lewmar parts and accessories to ensure top performance and eliminate the risk of voiding your 

warranty.  For replacement parts, please visit your dealer or www.lewmar.com

4.3 Gypsy Suitability

Gypsies are ideally suited to handling our factory made Rope/Chain combination rodes, which consist of rope 

spliced to a chain tail. See §2 Specifications for details.
Ropes used must be windlass grade, medium lay nylon. Ropes from different manufacturers have wide variations 

in stretch and consistency in diameter. Therefore, rope and chain from other manufacturers may require some 

experimentation to determine the optimum size.
Should you have difficulty in matching a gypsy to your chain please consult your local agent or our international 

network of distributors.

4.4 Above deck preparation

IMPORTANT - Plan location carefully and allow for the following:

25-50mm

1-2”

2

1

3

1. Use drilling template provided and choose an ap-

propriate position with reference to the vessel’s 

bow roller and the chain locker below. Allow for the 

rotation of the manual operating lever.

2. If possible select a flat area of deck. If the deck 

is not flat, care must be taken to ensure that the 

windlass base is parallel to the motor/gearbox 

mounting flange. Shims may be used, before the 

motor/gearbox is installed, to correct minor mis-

alignment

NOTE: If in doubt about the suitable construction of 

the shims consult a qualified marine engineer. 

The deck is an integral component of the windlass 

it has to secure the windlass and be strong enough 

to cope with the high torque stresses involved in 

recovering the anchor. Decks that are thin, or of foam 

or balsa laminate construction, will require reinforce-

ment in order to spread the loads that will be applied 

to the deck while the windlass is in use.

3. Lewmar recommends a minimum deck thickness of 25mm (1”), 

M8 Studs suit deck and packing thickness of 25-50mm (1” - 2”).

1. The motor/gearbox is bolted via the through deck 

mounting bolts. 

Do not position motor/gearbox below rode/chain 

pipe fall area.

2. There must be sufficient vertical fall for the chain or 

rope when hauling in.

4.6 Above deck fitting

Using the template and after you have checked all the 

above and below deck requirements cut the following 

holes:

Using a 10mm (

3

/

8

”) diameter drill bit, make the three 

holes for the mounting studs and two for the motor 

cables. With a 76mm (3”) diameter hole saw, make one 

hole for the rode to pass through.

±5°

1. Lead from the roller should be fed horizontally back 

to the top of the gypsy and along its centre line 

within ±5˚

2. Using your template and after you have checked 

all the above and below deck requirements cut the 

following holes. Using a 10mm (

3/8

”) diameter drill, 

make the 4 holes for the mounting studs, 18mm 

(

3/4

”) and 40mm (1 

9

/

16

”) diameter hole saw, make 2 

holes for the mainshaft and rode to pass through.

3. When all the holes have been made, remove the 

template. To help avoid water absorption by the 

deck, apply an appropriate marine sealant to the 

freshly cut hole edges.

4. Assemble and tighten studs to 21 Nm into base un-

til they bottom out in their holes. Position the flats 

of the studs nearest the base of the windlass.

5. Place the base mat in position on the deck. Option-

ally, apply a suitable sealant to the base of the 

windlass, any mounting pad or around the studs. 

NOTE: If using silicone or other rubbery type seal-

ant, it is advisable to allow curing of the sealant 

before final tightening of the mounting nuts.

6. Lightly coat the shaft with grease and ensure the 

drive key is in place before assembly to motor/

gearbox.

Lewmar recommends the installer source and install cable that meets the requirements of the standards and 

regulations relevant to the installation and codes of practice.
The cable table gives recommended cable sizes based on total length of cable required, from the battery,  

following the route of the cables to the windlass and back.

5.3 Control switch installation

The unit is supplied with

•  Guarded rocker switch (product ref 68000593)

•  Contactor (500W- 68000939 / 700W- 68000937)

Follow the wiring diagram § 5.4-5.7
NOTE: Optional electric footswitches and remote handheld control available.

Windlass performance is directly related to 

cable size and length. Voltage drop over the 

complete wiring run must not exceed 10%.

NOTE: In a multi station installation all switches must be wired in a parallel circuit.

DO NOT confuse cable length with 

the length of the vessel

5.2 Wiring

Plan the installation to suit the controls and give the operator a full view of the windlass. The wiring system 

should be of the fully insulated type, which avoids possible electrolytic corrosion problems. We recommend the 

use of type III stranded, tinned copper wire with copper crimp terminals. Most modern installations are negative 

return (negative ground) but polarity should be checked.
Short-circuit protection, in the form of the circuit breaker provided must be built into the windlass wiring circuit.

•  Circuit breaker supplied:  

CPX0-500W 

70A (Part No 68000240) 

CPX0-700W 

90A (Part No 68000349)

•  The circuit breaker should be positioned close to the 

battery in a dry, readily accessible place.

•  The breaker must be manually reset should an over-

load occur that causes it to trip to the off position.

If you are not sure you understand these guidelines, seek professional help. Ensure that the installation com-

plies with USCG, ABYC, NMMA or other local regulations.

 

⚠ WARNING!

 

‣ When wiring Lewmar electric motor into the ship’s 

electrical system the following caution must be 

taken.

 

‣ When tightening the front nut hold the back nut 

with a separate wrench to make sure the back 

nut does not turn. If the back nut turns, serious 

damage will occur, voiding Lewmar’s warranty on 

the electric motor.

5.4 Electric motor terminal connections

DO NOT overtighten electric motor terminal nuts.

6- Operation

1. Release any anchor locks

2. Insert the Lewmar lever in to the gypsy drive cap. When safe, rotate handle 

anti-clockwise until anchor pays out, controlling the rate of descent of the 

anchor with the handle.  Once paid out fully tighten gypsy drive cap and 

remove handle.

6.1 Manual controlled freefall

Use this method for quicker anchor deployment, in an emergency involving loss of power or to save battery 

power. Observe maritime anchor deployment safety rules.

When anchoring, power rode out allowing the vessel to take up stern away preventing the rode tangling with 

anchor. Use this method for mooring stern first to a jetty.

6.3 Windlass operating procedures

This is an anchor recovery device. DO NOT use the windlass to pull the boat to the anchor as it will damage the 

mechanism. Vessels at anchor will snub on the rode and this can cause slippage or apply excessive loads to the 

windlass. Best practice is to use a bollard or other strong point when at anchor and use the vessels engines to 

break the anchor free. Otherwise excessive load will cause the freefall function to seize and can cause damage 

to the gearbox.

To aid recovery, under power, move vessel towards anchor but not over and beyond, as this can cause damage to 

topside.
As anchor approaches the vessel use careful adjustments of controls to avoid damaging vessel, start and stop 

the windlass to bring the anchor slowly into the bow roller.   

Pulling the last bit of rode and anchor into the bow roller at full speed can damage the boat, bow roller and 

windlass.
When stowing it is important to make sure, particularly with rode lines that there is at least 300mm (12”) of 

free space below the windlass (See §4.5). Stop and check during the stowing process to determine if there is 

sufficient space on you vessel. If the rode pile is too close to the underside of the windlass, re-distribute the rode 

away from directly below the windlass. If the rode gets too close to the underside of the windlass it will cause 

problems with good rode recovery and may cause damage to the line. 

When retrieving anchor do not 

overload or stall in windlass.

The rode should be secured directly to a bollard, samp-

son post or cleat and a chain secured by a chain stopper.

7- Servicing

7.1 Servicing schedule

The service period is determined by the frequency of use. Professional user will need to carry out these opera-

tions more often than the weekend user. Before commencing any work on this or any other electrical product, 

isolate from the power source.
Bedding in period:
When new there are some areas that will need frequent checking. If no movement is found they can be inspected 

less often. 

•  Examine all electrical connections, to make sure they are sound and corrosion hasn’t set in.  

Tighten if necessary and protect if required. 

•  Check mounting studs are firmly clamped and tighten if required.

After use:

•  Wash down the windlass using fresh water. 

•  Ensure rode is at least 12” (300mm) below the 

windlass

•  Check anchor locker drain 

•  Check rode and splice for wear.

•  Check motor is dry and free of rust

Annually or more often if frequent user:

•  Examine all electrical connections, to make sure 

they are sound and corrosion hasn’t set in. Tighten if 

necessary and protect if required. 

•  Check mounting studs are firmly clamped and 

tighten if required.

•  Check rode and splice for wear.

•  Check gypsy as it is a high wear item (For service 

and replacement see §7.2)

•  Check motor/gearbox for corrosion, clean and repaint 

with a suitable marine grade oil based enamel paint.

•  Remove electric motor cover and blow dust away 

from brushes using foot pump or similar taking care 

not to breathe any dust.

 

⚠ WARNING! Isolate the windlass 

using circuit breaker/isolator

 

⚠ WARNING! Ensure rode is adequately 

secured to an independent strong point

7.2 Gypsy replacement/service

1. Remove chain pipe cover screws using 5 mm Allen 

key.

2. Place lever into gypsy drive cap, rotate anti-clock-

wise and remove.

3. Remove drive washer.

4. Pull control arm back to clear gypsy and remove 

gypsy assembly. 

Wash with clean water - DO NOT JET WASH.

5. Assemble in reverse order. When reassembling 

the drive washer and gypsy, add a small smear 

of grease to the contact surfaces. Lightly grease 

thread at top of mainshaft, and chain pipe cover 

screws’

7.3 Control arm replacement/ service

Remove gypsy, proceed as §7.2.

•  Unscrew control arm shoulder screw using a 3 mm Allen key.

•  Remove control arm and torsion spring from the base plate.

•  Wash with clean water (Not Jetwash). Replace components if necessary. Assemble in reverse order and apply 

grease to spring

1. Anchor rode pays out independently while windlass is not in use.

•  This problem is a result of not securing the anchor rode combined with the gypsy drive cap being slack. 

Tighten the gypsy drive cap using the winch handle and always secure the anchor rode independently of the 

windlass when not in use.

2. Failure to operate or sluggish operation.

•  The majority of these problems are electrical in nature. It is essential that the proper voltage be maintained. 

The typical operating voltage range at the motor is 10.5 - 14 Volts, constant low voltage will damage motor. 

Ensure electrical cable size is large enough to handle the current draw and keep voltage drop within accept-

able limits.

•  Check control switches, connections, battery condition, isolator switch, fuse and motor for operation failure.

3. Failure to operate.

•  Is there a voltage at the input terminals to the contactor and switches. Check the circuit breaker/isolator 

switch and any fuses.

•  Operate the switch. Is there voltage at the positive switch terminal on the solenoid. If not, the switch (or its 

wiring), is defective.

•  Keep the switch activated. Is there voltage at the main output terminal on the contactor. If not check the 

contactor coil ground circuit. If okay, replace the contactor.

•  Check the voltage at the motor. If voltage of at least 9 volts is present and the motor does not operate, the 

motor may be defective.

10- Warranty

Lewmar warrants that in normal private pleasure boat 

usage and with proper maintenance its products will 

conform with their specification for a period of three 

years from the date of purchase by the end user, subject 

to the conditions, limitations and exceptions listed 

below. Any product, which proves to be defective in 

normal usage during that three-year period, will be 

repaired or, at Lewmar’s option, replaced by Lewmar. 

A   CONDITIONS AND LIMITATIONS
i   Lewmar’s liability shall be limited to the repair or 

replacement of any parts of the product which are 

defective in materials or workmanship.

ii   Responsibility for the selection of products appropriate 

for the use intended by the Buyer shall rest solely with 

the Buyer and Lewmar accepts no responsibility for any 

such selection.

iii   Lewmar shall not be liable in any way for Product failure, 

or any resulting loss or damage that arises from:

a. use of a product in an application for which it was not 

designed or intended;

b. corrosion, ultra violet degradation or wear and tear;
c. a failure to service or maintain the product in accordance 

with Lewmar’s recommendations;

d. faulty or deficient installation of the product (unless 

conducted by Lewmar);

e. any modification or alteration of the product;
f.   conditions that exceed the product’s performance 

specifications or safe working loads.

g. Abuse
iv  Product subject to a warranty claim must be returned 

to the Lewmar outlet that supplied the product for 

examination unless otherwise approved by Lewmar in 

writing.

v   This warranty does not cover any incidental costs 

incurred for the investigation, removal, carriage, 

transport or installation of product.

vi  Service by anyone other than authorized Lewmar 

representatives shall void this warranty unless it accords 

with Lewmar guidelines and standards of workmanship.

vii  Lewmar’s products are intended for use only in the 

marine environment. Buyers intending to use them for 

any other purpose should seek independent professional 

advice as to their suitability. Lewmar accepts no liability 

arising from such other use.

B   EXCEPTIONS
  Cover under this Warranty is limited to a period of 

one year from the date of purchase by the end user in 

the case of any of the following products or parts of 

products:

•  Electric motors and associated electrical equipment
•   Electronic controls
•   Hydraulic pumps, valves and actuators
•   Hatch & Portlight weather seals
•  Products used in “Grand Prix” racing applications
•   Products used in commercial or charter applications
•   Anchor rodes
C   LIABILITY
i   Lewmar’s liability under this warranty shall be to the 

exclusion of all other warranties or liabilities (to the 

extent permitted by law). In particular (but without 

limitation):

a.  Lewmar shall not be liable for:
•   Any loss of anticipated turnover or profit or indirect, 

consequential or economic loss;

•   Damages, costs or expenses payable to any third party;
•   Any damage to yachts or equipment;
•  Death or personal Injury (unless caused by Lewmar’s 

negligence).

  Some states and countries do not allow the exclusion or 

limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the 

above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you

b.  Lewmar grants no other warranties regarding the fitness 

for purpose, use, nature or satisfactory quality of the 

products.

ii   Where applicable law does not permit a statutory or 

implied warranty to be excluded, then such warranty, if 

permitted by that state or country’s law, shall be limited 

to a period of one year from the date of purchase by 

the end user. Some states and countries do not allow 

limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so this 

limitation may not apply to you.

D   PROCEDURE
  Notice of a claim for service under this warranty shall 

be made promptly and in writing by the end user to the 

Lewmar outlet that supplied the product or to Lewmar 

Limited at Southmoor Lane, Havant, Hampshire PO9 1JJ, 

England.

E   SEVERANCE CLAUSE
  If any clause of this warranty is held by any court or other 

competent authority to be invalid or unenforceable in 

whole or in part, the validity of the remaining clauses of 

this warranty and the remainder of the clause in question 

shall not be affected.

F   OTHER RIGHTS
  This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may 

also have other legal rights, which vary from state to 

state and country to country.

  In the case of European States a Consumer customer (as 

defined nationally) has legal rights under the applicable 

national law governing the sale of Consumer Goods; this 

Warranty does not affect those rights.

G LAW
  This warranty shall be governed by and read in 

accordance with the laws of England or the state or 

country in which the first end user is domiciled at the 

time of purchase of the product.

H DISPUTES
  Any dispute arising under this warranty may, at the 

option of the end-user, be referred to alternative 

dispute resolution under the rules of the British Marine 

Federation or to the Courts of the State whose law shall 

govern the warranty or to the Courts of England and 

Wales.

  The British Marine Federation may be contacted at 

Marine House, Thorpe Lea Road, Egham, England, TW20
