SF Mini Windlass


SF MINI 500W 12V

SKU: STRESS FREE MINI - Categories: , Tag:


The SF Mini Windlass is just like having an extra crew member tending the anchor for you raising and lowering your anchor quickly, safely and effortlessly. There is no need to tie off your anchor rope, no racing down to the bow to drop or raise the anchor. No tangled rope and chain in the anchor well. No strained back or frustrated amateur crew. No rushing around the boat to move your mooring.

Simply drive the boat to where you want to fish, push a button and the anchor is lowered quickly without fuss or bother. It is even automatically secured. You can lower and retrieve your anchor rope using our Australian made electric anchor winches at a rate between 80 and 90 feet per minute! The revolutionary Stress-Free Marine electric drum anchor winch is available in a range of capacities, and there’s one designed just to fit into your boat.
