Electric windlass - options

Hi,

We''re in the process of retrofitting our sailboat with a new electric windlass. We''d welcome comments/suggestions/warnings from others in terms of vertical vs horizontal units, power rating and brands.

We have a 46 ft center cockpit Liberty458, 30,000 lbs displacement. We''re currently looking at units from Lofrans (Progress II 1200W and 1500W vertical w/ capstan, Tigress 1200W horizontal), and Muir (VRC2500 1200W vertical w/ capstan).

Anyone with experience with these or other brands - we''d appreciate your comments.

Regards,

Guylain/Katrina
SV Ganache
