Thought of you yesterday! We went to Michael Beans' show at Marina Cay and after the conch blowing contest we have a newfound respect for Christiopher Jr. Congratulations! Hope you have a long and safe sailing season this year!

B43 Windlass Drainage

Doing some maintenance on my B43 Quick Antares windlass this year. After removing the windlass, I knew instantly that I should have been doing this at least ever other year.  The windlass was preforming weak and slow with a noise which made me think the motor brushes or a bearing was going out, thus the reason for removing it.What I found upon removal was a tremendous amount of salt and sand on the top part of the gearbox, literally packed in.
