Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] illustration of the Basic Maintenance of the Lofrans Tigres Windlass


Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

Alex,

Lofrans designs the cone to slip inside the gypsy so that internal damage does not occur on the windlass. I have helped several Amel owners who unfortunately did not know to grease this. The key on the shaft warps, bends and cuts into the key groove on the windlass cone which is inside the gypsy, and/or the windlass will get pulled out of the deck when excessive force is applied through the anchor chain.

Always use a snubber...mine is a 1 1/2" multiplait nylon line that is 7 meters long. I attach it to the large bow cleat and a pelican hook on the chain. I never anchor without it.

Maybe SM "RASCAL" will post some photos, and/or comment.

Best,

Bill

Glad all looks ok Bill,

I “guess” if the windlass manufacturers did not want the possibility of the cone to slip, they would have bold them together…
Mine definitely did not slip before…

It was interesting as i put my new Rocna anchor on, then pull the chain up, as it was slipping, so I just tight the wing nut, this is also how I realize the emergency handle is a perfect fit to tight the wing nut as well 1) giving leverage 2) keeping hands at a safe distance.

Sincerely, Alexandre

When I looked at your photo
documentary, I saw nothing out of line. I downloaded
it.
I have had several
discussions with people that don't believe that the cone
should be greased because that will cause it to slip. I
always say, exactly, it is supposed to slip under heavy
loads.

don't hesitate to correct me, this will help others
too!!!

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:



http://nikimat.com/lofrans_tigres_windlass.html







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).
