How to Select the Right Size VC Capstan

When sizing VC Capstans, Maxwell recommends that for a particular length of boat, the next size smaller motor can be used for a mooring capstan, compared to a windlass sized for that boat. We have used those sizing recommendations in our product entries.

So, if a VWC 1500 windlass was selected as suitable for a particular vessel, that vessel would use a VC 1000 capstan.

Please refer to the chart, below, for more details. Note that the VC entries are in the left-most column.
