Re: [Amel] Windlass switches and covers

Eric we only found that kind of switch when we were in Europe.  Finding the short threaded contact switches here is very hard to do.  They are an AMEL add on..  if you can find someone to weld up the holes you can use the hand held switch or use a foot switch.  Good luck

By the way anyone buying a replacement Windless the new Tigeres does not come the housing mounted switches (we mounted the hand held in the port locker) nor does it have a place for the chain counter.  You have to drill a hold into the flange and hand grind a flat for the nut to hold the counter element.  You will also have to drill the two holds for the counter itself.  When you do that be sure to set the end of the counter reader within .5" or less of the element.

I am looking for a couple of windlass switches and covers that Amel mounted

on the Lofrans windlass. Does anyone know of a source?

Also, does anyone know of a company that can repair a Dolphin 100 amp

battery charger?

Fair Winds,
