Windlass Radio Remote
By Elizabeth A. Ginns — September 2003
Sometimes it’s easy to inadvertently activate foredeck-mounted windlass footswitches, and cabled remotes can restrict movement around the area and often need to be passed up through a hatch, which is inconvenient at best and can be dangerous under harsh conditions. The Windlass Radio Remote allows you to control your windlass from anywhere on your boat, no matter what you’re doing and regardless of the conditions.
Once installed, the system can be used instead of or in combination with existing windlass controls. The remote is powered by AAA batteries (included) that according to the company should provide more than five years of use. The remote comes with a waterproof wrist lanyard that floats, for added convenience.
The Windlass Radio Remote retails for $285, including shipping and handling, and is available from its manufacturer.
