Overview
The VWC Series of windlasses is designed for automatic (hands-free) handling of chain-only anchor rodes. They have an integral chainpipe built into the windlass body to facilitate delivering the chain directly into the chain locker.
VWC windlasses are available in two formats — a low profile, chainwheel-only version, and one with an added independent capstan for the retrieval of a secondary mostly rope rode, or to assist with docking procedures.
This entries features the low profile version of the VWC.

Note — Typical boat lengths listed include both light and heavy displacement vessels. If your vessel's length is toward the top end of the range given for a particular windlass, but has a relatively heavy displacement for its length, choose the next larger size windlass.
Analogously, If your vessel's length is toward the top end of the range provided for a particular windlass, but has a very light displacement for its length, you can select that windlass.
Use common sense and good judgment, as you never know when your windlass will be pressed to perform at the limits of its capabilities - such as raising the anchor in storm conditions.

• Models for 1/4" to 1/2" chain
• Cone-type brake/clutch mechanism permits controlled manual "free fall" anchoring
• Chainwheel locking pawl
• Simple through deck installation by alignment of gearbox to the topworks utilizing marine-grade stainless steel bolts
• Anodized aluminum gearbox and spacer tube
• Decoding the part numbers — model and size, power source, chainwheel number
• As with all windlasses, use in conjunction with a chain stopper, snubber or mooring cleat to take the load when lying at anchor
• CE marked
• 3-year limited warranty

What's in the box (U.S. models) — windlass and chainwheel, panel mounted up/down helm switch, dual direction solenoid kit, panel mounted on/off circuit breaker, two (2) deck mounted black covered low amperage foot switches, and clutch release/emergency manual retrieval handle.
Recommended options include: chain stopper (or chain snubber); see Accessories, below.
Additional options include: wired or wireless rode counters, windlass control and rode counter combo, wired or wireless handheld remote control; see Related Products.

Note that the chainwheels on VWC windlasses are for chain-only rodes, and do not have any provision for handling rope.

Is one of these windlasses a good choice for your boat? You can use the recommended typical boat lengths provided or, for a more rigorous determination, take the total weight of your ground tackle (anchor + rode - presumably correctly sized for your particular vessel) and multiply by 3. The maximum pull capability of the windlass should be at least as large as the resulting number.
