Does anyone have pictures of the new windlass once installed.

Here are some pictures of my windless.  Maxwell Freedom 500.  Mostly factory with the reverse switch added.  Works great.  Added feature, I remove the rode and use the drum to go up the mast.   Just have a couple of blocks to lead the halyard to the drum, a good person tailing and toe pressure is all it takes to send 200# up the mast.

All,

I have the original article from the author Chic Lasser and able to send out with his permission. But unable to post it as file size to large with pictures. I even converted to PDF format to dhrink it but not enough. Send me a note and I will email to anyone who wants it.

Dietrich,
My upgrade looks just like yours. I wish we had room for a second switch for "reverse." Fortunately the remote works well.

While not sure if I mentioned it before but my remote cost $12.40 from Amazon and still operated at 425 feet away.
So far so good on this key fob sized remote but like Dave said, it saves trying to install a down button. I have been wondering if one day we'll find ourselves within 425' of another remote using the same frequency.
