For the new owners like myself who are intimidated by
maintenance task they have never done performed, I
illustrated the “Basic maintenance” of the Lofrans
Tigres Windlass.



I really would like the more experience owners to look at
the document and make sure I did not make any mistake (too
much grease, etc.) and correct me.



Since I purchase my vessel (end of 2012) I had never
serviced the windlass… Why?

because I don’t use it much and gave priority to other
systems that i use all the time.

Consequently some parts were very difficult to extract.



Now that I am familiar with it, I will definitely service it
on a regular basis (starting every 3 months).

I believe this will be much easier and quicker.



This also helped me to understand better how my windlass
works.



Here is the link:

For low bandwidth user, the document is split in 5 sections.




If bandwidth is not an issue, there is also the full version
(58 pictures).
