information about this manual

General

Please read before installing and operating your 
Windlass.

Classifi cation Societies and Lewmar require that a vessel at 
anchor must have its rode held by a chain stopper or equivalent 
strong point at all times!
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 examined, 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 qualifi ed engineer.

Windlasses used incorrectly could cause harm to equipment 
or crew.

Windlasses should  be used with care and treated with
respect.

Sailing, like many other sports 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.

It is the unavoidable responsibility of the owner or master or 
other responsible party to assess the risk of any operation
on the vessel.

Safety notices

1. Installation

Warning!
 This is a warning against anything which may cause injury to people 
if the warning is ignored. You are informed about what you must 
or must not do in order to reduce the risk of injury to yourself and
others.

Safety Symbol
 When you see the safety symbol it means: “Do not...”; “Do not do 
this”; or “Do not let this happen”.

Lewmar recommends the use of appropriate Personal 
Protective Equipment and  hands free communication 
equipment by any person going aloft, and only then where 
the person going aloft is properly trained in the use of 
that equipment and where there remain suffi cient trained 
and experienced  personnel  on  deck  to  ensure  constant 
observation and the continued safe conduct both of the vessel 
and the hoisting operation.

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.

Electrical

• Make sure you have switched off the power before you start 

installing this product.

•  If in doubt about installing electrical equipment please seek 

advice from a suitably qualifi ed electrical engineer.

Electromagnetic compatibility

•  It is essent ial  that this product  does not cause any 

electromagnetic  disturbance to any other electrical or 
electronic equipment installed in the vessel. This will  be 
achieved if the windlass is connected to the same battery as 
the vessel’s starter motor and not to the service battery to 
which other equipment is connected. In addition, the run of 
the wiring, from the battery to the windlass, should be kept 
as far apart from the other wiring on the vessel as possible. 
For instance, if the main wiring loom is to starboard, fi t the 
windlass wiring to port.
It should be noted that there is no evidence to indicate that 
windlass installations do cause magnetic interference but the 
installer is advised to carry out checks when the installation 
is complete.

1.1 Gypsy Suitability

Gypsies fi tted to the V1 range of windlasses are ideally suited 
to handling our factory made Rope/Chain combination rodes, 
which consist of rope spliced to a chain tail.

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  diffi culty in matching a gypsy to your chain 
please consult your local agent or our international network of 
Lewmar distributors worldwide.

1.5 Specifi cations

Typical working fi gures:

1.6 Fitting the windlass to the deck

•  If the deck is not fl at, a suitable mounting pad may be 

required to take up camber or sheer.

 

Decks that are thin, or of foam or balsa laminate construction, 
will require reinforcement in order to spread the loads that 
will be applied to the deck while the windlass is in use.

 

The standard 8 mm threaded mounting studs supplied suit 
deck and packing thickness of up to 60 mm (2

1

/

4

”). These 

are adequate for most installations.

Fig. 1.6-1

•  Place the windlass on the deck and decide upon a position 

for it with reference to the vessel’s bow roller (Fig. 1.6-2)
and the chain locker below.  Rode lead from the roller should 
ideally be fed horizontally back to the top of the gypsy and 
along its centerline (Fig. 1.6-3).

 

There must be suffi cient vertical fall for the chain or rope,
even with a full locker, to draw the rode from the gypsy when 
hauling in.

the mounting studs and sensor. With a 75 mm (3”) diameter 
hole saw, make two holes for the rode and down tube to pass
through.

 

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.

• Place the mounting template on the deck or mounting pad

in the desired position for the windlass and hold it in place
using adhesive tape.

• Fully screw the four mounting studs into the  base of the

windlass. Screw the studs into the base fi nger tight, with
the fl ats towards the base as shown (Fig 1.6-5).

•  Next, using a 7 mm (

”) spanner on the fl ats, tighten the 

studs until they bottom out in their holes. Do this to each of 
the studs in turn.

Fig. 1.6-6

As a rule of thumb, if the fl ats on the studs are visible below 
deck, the deck and/or any packing is likely to be too thin to 
offer adequate support when the windlass is under load.

•  NOTE: If using silicone or other rubber y type

sealant, it is advisable to allow curing of the sealant 
before fi nal tightening of the mounting nuts.

Fig. 1.6-3

•  Place the base mat in position on the deck, optionally, apply 

a suitable sealant to the base of the windlass, any mounting 
pad or around the studs.

1.7 Fitting the motor gearbox

• Under the  deck  lightly coat the shaft with grease before 

assembling the motor gearbox.

•  Remove the nyloc nut from the end of the Fast Fit clamp bolt 

and screw the bronze nut up to the end of the thread.

Fig. 1.7-1

•  Open up the Fast Fit clamp and offer the gearbox up to the 

above deck unit, sliding the shaft into the gearbox. Ensure 
the drive key is in place.

• Place the gearbox up the shaft and rotate it into a suitable 

position before finally pushing home onto the location 
dowels.

 Swing the Fast Fit clamp shut and tighten up the bronze

nut by hand. If required you can remove the plastic location 
plug holding the Fast Fit clamp in place and rotate the 
clamp around the gearbox fl ange to give a better location
for tightening up the nut.

• Tighten up the bronze nut to 15 Nm (11 lb/ft) before adding 

the Nyloc nut. Tighten the Nyloc nut up behind the bronze
nut.

2. Electrical wiring installation

2.1 Electric cable selection

To achieve the best performance and to safeguard your electrical
system it is essential that any electrical windlass be fi tted with
suffi ciently large diameter cable to cope with the current draw 
imposed upon it and to keep the voltage drop within acceptable
limits. In any circumstance voltage drop due entirely to cable
resistance should not exceed 10%.
The following table gives recommended cable sizes. The
recommendations are based on total length of cable required,
from the battery, following the route of the cables.

• Total length of cable run is from the batter y to the 

windlass, and from the windlass back to the batter y.

• In Multi Station installations 14 AWG wire (1.5 mm² cross

sectional area, 21/0.30 PVC covered) is used to connect the
switches to the reversing control box.

2.2 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 two cable 
fully insulated return 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. If necessary add a grounding strap between 
the mounting studs and an earthing point.

If a contactor is installed in an anchor locker it is exposed to harsh 
conditions it is not designed to withstand. Furthermore this type 
of installation will void your warranty.
Overload protection, in the form of the circuit breaker/isolator 
supplied, must be built into the windlass wiring circuit. This 
protects the wiring and prevents undue damage to the windlass 
motor, in the event of its being stalled by an excessive load in 
service.
It is advisable to site the circuit breaker/isolator in a dr y, 
readily accessible place. The Breaker/ Isolator supplied must 
be manually reset should an overload occur that causes it to trip 
to the off position.

•  NOTE: Prior to fi tting crimps on the motor end of 

the cables fi t a rubber boot supplied, to the end of 
each cable. Apply a layer of grease to the inside of 
the rubber boot to further protect the connection.

• NOTE: Crimp terminals should be used on all wire

ends wherever possible for good electrical contacts.

If  you are not sure you understand these guidelines, seek 
professional  help. Ensure that the installation complies with 
USCG, ABYC, NMMA or other local regulations.

2.3 Control switch installation

Follow the mounting instructions supplied with  the switch. 
Remember, 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!

DO NOT install the contactor in the anchor locker.

4. Maintenance

4.1 General recommendations

• After the fi rst two or three anchor recoveries, check the 

mounting nuts to ensure that the windlass is still fastened 
tightly to your deck, as it should now be bedded-in.

• Regularly wash down the exterior of your windlass with fresh 

water.

•  Examine all electrical connections for possible corrosion, 

clean and lightly grease as necessary.

•  Anchor rode splice should be checked regularly and remade 

if there is any evidence of wear.

• The gypsy should be examined on a regular basis, because it 

is a high wear item. The gypsy is designed for short scopes
of chain and will last longer if properly used.

• At least every six months - Check mounting studs and nuts

for condition and tightness.

• The  bearing is self  lubricating and  should not require

servicing.

5. Dismantling procedures

Isolate the windlass electrically, before carrying out any
maintenance work and tie rode off to a suitable secure point.

Isolate the windlass electrically, before carrying out any
maintenance work.

5.1 Gypsy replacement

Remove the two socket head cap screws (34) that retain the chain 
pipe cover (11) using a 5 mm Allen key and lift the chain pipe 
cover off. Remove the rode from the gypsy. Remove the gypsy 
drive cap (22) anti-clockwise using the winch handle.
Remove the washer (5) and top cone (15). Pull the control arm 
(23) back to clear the gypsy (31) and remove the gypsy assembly 
from the unit. To replace the gypsy assembly, reverse the above 
procedure. Grease the threads of the chain pipe cover and stripper 
screw prior to re-assembly.

5.2 Manual recovery gypsy replacement

Remove the two socket head cap screws (34) that retain the 
chain pipe cover (11) using a 5 mm Allen key and lift the chain 
pipe cover off. Remove the rode from the gypsy. Remove the 
manual recovery top nut (24), anti-clockwise using the winch 
handle. Remove the manual recovery gypsy cap (25) and washer 
(4) together.
Remove the washer (5) and top cone (15). Pull the control arm 
(23) back to clear the gypsy (31) and remove the gypsy assembly 
from the unit. To replace the gypsy assembly, reverse the above 
procedure. Grease the threads of the chain pipe cover and stripper 
screw prior to re-assembly

5.3 Control arm replacement

This should  be carried out with  the gypsy (31) removed as 
detailed  above. To remove the control arm (23). Unscrew the 

As a prudent act of seamanship, anchor recovery operations
require the undivided attention of skipper and crew to prevent 
personal injury or damage to the vessel.
In a typical anchor recovery situation, the windlass will pass
through a number of operational phases.

3.1 Safety fi rst

To avoid personal injuries ensure that limbs, fi ngers and clothing
are kept clear of the anchor rode and windlass during operation. 
Always ensure that there are no swimmers or divers nearby when
dropping your anchor.

•  NOTE: Electric motors can get hot during (and for 

some time after) use - DO NOT touch the motor 
gearbox!

3.2 Use of clutch

To tighten the clutch - using the winch handle supplied, rotate the
gypsy drive cap (22) clockwise, this will grip the gypsy, effectively 
locking it to the windlass geartrain.
To slacken the clutch - turn the gypsy drive cap anti-clockwise, 
this will free the gypsy allowing it to turn independently of the 
windlass geartrain.

3.3 Letting go under gravity

Insert the winch handle into the gypsy drive cap (22) (top cap 
lock nut (24), manual recovery version) and turn it clockwise to
ensure that the clutch is tight. Release any independent anchor 
locks. If it is safe to do so, pull back on the clutch lever until the 
anchor and rode begin to pay out. Control the rate of decent of 
the anchor by pushing the clutch lever forwards. When suffi cient 
rode has been paid out, fully tighten the gypsy drive cap once 
again.

3.4 Letting go under power

Release any independent anchor locks.
If it is safe to do so, let go under power by operating a ‘Down’ 
control. Release the control when suffi cient rode has been paid 
out.

3.5 Lying to anchor safely

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

3.6 Hauling in

Untie the bridle or replace the rode in the gypsy.
If it is safe to do so, operate an ‘Up’ control.
The fallsafe pawl (12) does not need to be disengaged during 
retrieval as it will act as a ratchet. When the anchor has been 
retrieved and is stowed in the bow roller, the fallsafe pawl should 
be left engaged in the gypsy to prevent accidental deployment of 
the anchor whilst underway.

REMEMBER - The fall safe pawl DOES need to be 
disengaged from the gypsy before the anchor can be let 
go again.

Having retrieved the anchor, ensure it is independently secured 
to prevent its accidental release.

3.7 Manual recovery

Turn the power off at circuit breaker. Engage fall safe pawl 
(12), in the gypsy. Undo the manual recovery top nut (24) by 
approximately half a turn using the winch handle. Place the winch 
handle into the bi-square in the gypsy cap (25) and wind clockwise 
to haul in rode. When the rode is fully hauled in it should be made 
fast directly to a bollard, Sampson post or cleat. 

3.8 Operating tips

When anchoring, it is best to power the rode out, allowing the 
vessel to take up stern way before full scope is let out.  This helps 
prevent the rode from becoming tangled on top of your anchor 
on the seabed.
To aid anchor recovery, we recommend that the vessel’s engine 
be used to assist by moving the vessel towards the anchor.  We do 
not recommend that the vessel be motored over and beyond the 
anchor, as this can cause the rode to damage your topsides.
As the anchor approaches the stemhead, the last few feet of rode 
should be inched in by judicious use of controls to avoid damage 
to the vessel.
Having retrieved the anchor, ensure the fall safe pawl is engaged 
in the gypsy to lock it and prevent accidental deployment of the 
anchor whilst underway.
When mooring stern to, at a suitable distance from the jetty, 
deploy the anchor to prevent the bow from swinging.  Gently pay 
out the rode under the infl uence of the stern way of the vessel 
as it approaches the jetty. Make fast your vessel with warps from 
the stern.

3. Operating your windlass

  Always remove the handle after use.

For maximum safety and to prevent damage, the fallsafe pawl MUST NOT 
be left to take the entire force from the anchor rode while at anchor. The
rode should be made fast directly to a bollard, sampson post or cleat.

  Always check the fallsafe pawl (32) is disengaged from the gypsy 

and held clear of it by the fallsafe lever (34).

Always remove the handle after use.

control arm shoulder screw (8) using a 4 mm Allen wrench and
remove screw. Remove the control arm (23) and torsion  spring 
(7) from the base plate. To replace the control arm, reverse the 
above procedure.

5.4 Motor gearbox maintenance

Regular visual inspection of the unit, electrical connections and
cables is required. Repair/renew cables if damage is evident.
Re-grease the terminals as required.
If corrosion is evident on the motor or gearbox, clean and repaint 
with a suitable marine grade oil based enamel paint.
Annualy- Remove motor and cover and blow (use face mask) dust 
away using foot pump or similar.

5.5 Fall safe pawl replacement

This should  be carried out with  the Gypsy (31) removed as 
detailed above. Turn the fall safe lever (18) so it is horizontal.
Remove fall safe shoulder screw (28) using  allen wrench. Lift 
off fall safe pawl (12). Remove fall safe spring (29). Replace new 
parts by reversing the above procedure.

5.6 Fall safe lever replacement

Turn fall safe lever (18) so it is horizontal. Remove socket screw 
(33) using allen wrench. Remove fall safe lever (18) & spacer (19).  
Replace new parts by reversing the above procedure.

3.9 Joining rope to chain

When splicing rope to chain, select a length of chain that will 
avoid having the splice positioned in the gypsy when the anchor 
comes over the stemhead. Furthermore, ensure that the splice 
is no tighter than the rope. A hard splice is not desired.
•  With whipping twine or similar, seize your rope 200 mm (8”) 

from the rope’s end and unlay the strands.

•  Pass one strand through the chain link from one side and the 

other two strands from the opposite side. Remove seizing 
and complete a back splice in the normal manner for four 
full tucks.

• With a hot knife pare down the three strands by one half of 

their diameter and continue with two further tucks.

• With a hot knife, carefully melt the ends back into the line. 

Because  of  wide  variations  in  rope  type and construction 
some experimentation may be required.

• Whip the line with permanent whipping at the beginning of 

the taper.

•  The above method of joining is designed to minimize chafe 

between the rope and chain but as a matter of prudent 
seamanship the splice should  be checked regularly and 
remade if there is any evidence of wear.

7. Troubleshooting

7.1 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 (22) being slack. Tighten the gypsy drive
cap using the tool provided and always secure the anchor rode
independently of the windlass whenever it is not being deployed 
or recovered.

Failure to Operate Troubleshoot Chart: Reversing Toggle Control Switch (Part No. 0052519)

Is there voltage at the input terminal (positive) to the control
switch?

If no voltage is present, the battery isolation switch is OFF, the
breaker is tripped or a fuse has blown. The battery may also 
have been dead or disconnected.

YES

   NO

Check voltage at the output terminals of the control switch
with the switch on forward then reverse.
Is there voltage at either output terminal for forward  then
reverse?

Control switch is defective.

YES

   NO

Replace motor.

Sluggish Operation Troubleshoot Chart

Is windlass overloaded?

Ease the load and ensure the battery is well charged.

YES

   NO

Check the voltage across the motor leads with the windlass 
on. (Proper voltage is 13.5 V. Constant low voltage will destroy 
the motor).
Is the voltage low? (Below 11.0 V on a 12 V system).

There is a severe voltage drop in the circuit.
Check for undersized cables, poor connections or corroded
connections. Also check for resistance across the  batter y 
isolation switch or solenoid. (Feel them to see if they are
heating up).

YES

   NO

Is the voltage correct? (Above 11.0 V and anchor is not 
fouled).

The motor is defective. Replace the motor.

YES 

7.2 Electrical troubleshooting

As with most electrical marine equipment the majority of problems 
that arise are electrical in nature. Therefore it is essential that 
the proper voltage be maintained. The proper voltage on a 12 
volt system is 13.5 volts. (Constant low voltage will destroy the 
motor). Ensure that electrical cable size is large enough to handle 
the current draw imposed upon it and to keep the voltage drop 
within acceptable limits. In any circumstance voltage drop due 
entirely to cable resistance should not exceed 10%.
Follow the charts to troubleshoot the problem.
