Machine shop for Lewmar H3 anchor windless - at machine shop

Beginning of August 2015 - At private slip in Nuevo Vallarta in Banderas Bay, Mexico

 Enrique said they would probably use different SS screws but it would be better than before. They will remove the two broken off screws in the housing and weld\fix the SS gypsy bracket better than new. I believe them, they do great work. It will be ready the next day and cost less than $20.00 USD. It is the off season and we are bringing the work into the shop versus having them come to the boat and pick it up but still the labor pricing is great. Now we just bought a quart of marine varnish and it was $60.00 USD so you see boat specific things are pricey, if you can get them.


We disconnected the windlass from the house batteries and then from the breaker.

The gypsy went to the Taller De Torno Gonzalez machine shop also.

We discovered the parts from Lewmar that we ordered 
were missing a lot of items including the screws we needed!

Where are the rest of the screws etc!
