Package Includes

  • Windlass
  • On/Off Breaker Panel
  • Reversing Solenoid
  • Up/down Panel Switch
  • Emergency crank / clutch release handle



Features

  • Fully automatic rope / chain windlass is designed to effortlessly retrieve and deploy 1/4" (6mm / 7mm) chain spliced to 1/2" (12 mm) three strand or 8-brait (plait) rope
  • The ingeniously designed rope/chain gypsy (chainwheel) is able to accommodate a wide range of chain pitch differences within the specified chain size diameters suitable for use with the RC8 Series
  • The RC8 Series is manufactured from marine-grade 316 stainless steel for long term durability
  • The heavy duty stainless steel pressure arm is designed to effectively help grasp the rope/chain splice, giving the RC8 an unparalleled level of performance
  • In combination with a heavy duty, large wire diameter, stainless steel preloaded spring, the pressure arm always exerts maximum control pressure
  • The RC8 works just as effectively with all-chain rodes for those who desire a Low Profile, elegantly styled windlass on their foredeck
  • Huge, through deck hawse pipe throat ensures easy entry of the rope/chain rode into and out of the anchor locker
  • Full disassembly capability of the topworks utilising only the handle provided and an Allen key
  • Manual override using the emergency crank handle provided
  • Sealed oil bath and marine-grade hard anodised, alloy gearbox provides high efficiency output drive via precision worm and worm wheel



All RC Series windlasses are fitted with Maxwell's unique Wave Design™ chainwheel

  • 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
  • As the rope pulls into the wheel, the opposite facing inner ribs grip the rope in an undulating manner, securing the rope more firmly in a 'wave pattern' action that is far superior to the traditional 'jam cleat' manner of holding the rope
  • Not only does this Wave Design™ hold the rope more securely, it is also kinder on the rope resulting in increased longevity of your anchor rode
  • Wave Design™ Chainwheel Is fitted to all RC Series windlasses, designed for anchor rodes with any marine grade chain, G4, BBB, Proof Coil and Metric

Lake Michigan Yellow Perch Bounce Back After Commercial Ban

For decades, commercial fishing for yellow perch was allowed in southern Lake Michigan. This persisted until 1996 when it was outlawed, giving perch stocks there some time to recover. Scientists had for some time assumed that this fishing ban would not affect the reproduction cycles of the perch quickly and that they were going to need a long time to revert back to the cycles they relied on before commercial fishing ever started. But new research led by scientists at Purdue University finds that maturation schedules of yellow perch in southern Lake Michigan are much more resilient than had been previously thought possible.

Colorado River Fish Contain Levels Of Selenium, Mercury

Largely seen as pristine and relatively untouched by human activity thanks to its protected status, the portion of the Colorado River flowing through Grand Canyon National Park is anything but, according to recently published research. This is evidenced by high levels of selenium and mercury found in the fishes there. Scientists from many institutions were involved in the years-long work, full results of which have been published in the journal Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry. It was led by the U.S. Geological Survey, but perhaps the contributors from Idaho State University got the best end of the stick. They were looking into the food webs of the river to evaluate concentrations of selenium and mercury gathering in fish.
