Winches, Capstans and Windlasses for
ROPE AND CHAIN
Maxwell can supply a full range of anchor rodes including chain only, rope only or pre-spliced combination rope and chain rodes. Chain, suitable for vessels up to 100 metres (about 300 feet), is available in short or stud link variations in both metric and imperial sizes. Maxwell stocks both 3-strand and 8 plait (braid) nylon rope commonly used on vessels up to 20 metres (65 feet) as well as ropes and hawsers commonly seen on superyachts.
Chain snubbers are an alternative method of taking the load off the windlass and are recommended to secure the anchor while underway. Available in rope versions with chain clevis hook (A) or snap shackle (B) and in various sizes: 6mm (1/4"), 8mm (5/16"), 10mm( 3/8"), 13mm (1/2").
MAXWELL ANCHOR TENSIONER
The innovative Maxwell Anchor Tensioner is designed to meet the market demand for a simple, easy to use and adjustable anchor tensioner which secures the anchor firmly into the bow roller, taking the weight off the windlass and preventing accidental deployment of the anchor while under way. Secured to an existing cleat or bollard, there is no installation required. Simply loop the bitter end of the high strength webbing, which has 5oomm (18") of adjustability, over a cleat or bollard, engage the tensioner 'claw' on the chain, and lock the cam-action lever which can be further secured with a quick release pin (supplied).
