Windlasses make boating more enjoyable by reducing the effort required to lift and lower heavy ground tackle making anchoring faster, easier and most importantly, safer. Most Quick windlasses are equipped with a gypsy that are designed to work with both rope and chain and are available in two versions: with or without a drum. The drum gives you the opportunity to use a second rope other than the one already in use for the anchor.

Capstans: these units are generally used for mooring and manoeuvering activities (dock line handling).
