The RC12 Series incorporates Maxwell's latest stylish innovation in automatic rope/chain technology. Retaining the classic open design styling more appropriate on larger boats, the RC12 Series represents the next generation of rope/chain windlass evolution in every respect.

Maxwell once again leads the market in innovative thinking with the introduction of their latest Wave Design™ chainwheel. This patented rope/chain wheel incorporates two unique design concepts that greatly improve the handling and control of the rope/chain spliced rode. The outer ribs of the chainwheel are angled slightly forward ensuring that the rope and the chain are smoothly guided in the wheel during anchor retrieval.


Features

  • The RC12-12 fully automatic windlass series is designed to effortlessly retrieve and deploy 12 - 13 mm (1/2") short link chain and 20 mm (5/8") three strand or 8-Plait rope.
  • Stainless steel AISI 316.
  • A sleek, Low Profile version and a fluted stainless steel (AISI 316) capstan drum version, are available.
  • The RC12 is packed with patented innovative features combined with Maxwell's traditionally classic aesthetics, but reflecting the modern "form follows function" of the highly successful RC6, RC8 and RC10 series windlasses.
  • With a maximum pull of 1590 kg (3500 lb), and an anchor retrieval rate of 15 m/min (50ft/min), the RC12-12 is one of the fastest and gruntiest windlasses in its class.
  • The elegantly designed deckplate and chainpipe cover are manufactured in polished marine-grade (AISI 316) stainless steel, as are the heavy duty pressure arm, stripper, chainwheel and fluted capstan drum.
  • The huge, through deck hawse pipe throat ensures easy entry of the rope/chain rode into and out of the anchor locker.
  • Double cone-type brake/clutch mechanism permits 'Free Fall' anchoring. Cone clutches, unlike dog clutches, provide smooth progressive engagement, ensuring safe and precise operator control.
  • The RC12 features Maxwell's revolutionary and patented new Wave DesignT chainwheel.
  • Emergency manual retrieval is made simple and easy with Maxwell's unique "Active Latch Ratchet System" operation that prevents backwind of the windlass during manual hauling of the anchor.
  • Every Maxwell RC12 automatic rope/chain windlass comes with top works, motor/gear box and dual direction solenoid. Switches and circuit breaker are available and need to be ordered separately.
  • Activation of the ratcheted mechanism lever ensures the windlass cannot backwindduring emergency (manual) retrieval of the rode (rope and/or chain) and anchor.
  • Important: Maxwell windlasses must be used in conjunction with a chain stopper and/or alternative snubbing device to take the load off the windlass while laying at anchor. The chain stopper and alternative snubbing system should also be used to secure the anchor in the fully raised position while under way.
  • Every Maxwell automatic rope/chain windlass is available with all the necessary components for fully automatic dual direction control in a competitively priced package.



The Maxwell designed, and innovative black, hard anodized gearbox provides numerous advantages

  • Fast and easy windlass installation.
  • More corrosion resistant.
  • Easy to maintain and service.
  • Takes up less room in the anchor locker.
  • 100:1 ratio, single stage design with less moving parts, for smoother and quieter operation.
  • Allows for multi-positioning of the gearbox/motor.

Algae Bloom Spawns New Water Monitoring Program In Utah Lake

The result of a harmful algae bloom in the summer of 2016, the enhanced Utah Lake water quality monitoring program, reached its one year milestone in September. Located near the Provo and Orem metropolitan areas, the lake is Utah’s largest freshwater body and a popular water recreation and fishing spot. In the summer of 2016, recreation users reported an unusual amount of scum on the surface of the water. Utah Lake is monitored by the Utah Division of Water Quality (UDWQ). Prior to the 2016 harmful algae bloom (HAB), the UDWQ successfully used regular water sample testing and citizen reporting to stay on top of any incidents.

Data Buoys Study Turbid Water Environments in Lake Erie Basin

What started as a study into a relatively unexamined type of cyanobacteria has turned biologists from Bowling Green State University into an integral part of the effort to monitor and protect the drinking water in Sandusky, Ohio. Dr. George Bullerjahn, the Professor of Research Excellence at Bowling Green State University, has done considerable work in the study of beneficial cyanobacterial organisms in the eastern and central basins of Lake Erie. His current project is focused on the growth of the toxic cyanobacterium Planktothrix in Sandusky Bay. Over the course of his career Bullerjahn has collaborated with Dr. Steven Wilhelm from the University of Tennessee.

Bottom Composition Matters, Underwater Cameras Can Help

As a pro angler, I use my Lowrance electronics every single time I am on the water. They are great at locating fish and structure, but when combined with my FishSens SondeCAM HD Underwater Camera they can show everything. A camera is a great tool for someone who wants to better understand what they are seeing on their electronics and for me, it helps get a clear picture of one of the most important things in bass fishing: bottom composition. Hard Spots Hard bottoms are usually the best, and bass will relate to hard bottoms of different types depending on the region. My Lowrance StructureScan will show hard bottoms as bright, white areas on the screen where softer bottoms will be more grayish.
