Windlass choices for PSC 31

Hello all, I am looking into installing a windlass on my PSC 31 and would like to hear any recomendations from folks that currently have one on their boat. Also interested in any installation experiences you may want to share.
Thank you,
Rick

I have a Lofrans manual windlass on my 2007 Pacific Seacraft 31. Have been every pleased with it. It was installed by the dealer during commissioning.

I have a Muir electric windlass and it has worked flawlessly for 10 years. Wouldn't be without it.

We have a manual Muir windless handling 5/16th inch chain. I think its an older model called Neptune.

Re: Windlass choices for PSC 31

Sorry for the de
Ay inresponse. I have a Muir Cougar (electric). Again it has been flawless. I have 150 feet of 5/16 HT and about 200feet of multi plait line. Changed to the multi plait from three stands due to less storage requirements. The starboard chain locker isn't the most accomodating! At times stop the anchor retireval and use the hawse pipe just lateral to the windlass opening and move the chain about. Not a big problem.

Re: Windlass choices for PSC 31

I installed a Lofrens Cayman 15 years ago on Crazy Fish.

One of the best upgrades I have ever made on the boat after a few years with a manual windless.

If the anchor does not set as well I would like there is never any question about bringing it up and resetting it.
