Quadrant Marine are proud to be a distributor of the award winning Ewincher, and we personally use one not only to make sailing easier, but to assist in our rigging work.
Ewincher is a power-assisted handle that makes winching so much easier. It's designed to perfectly assist sailing manoeuvres without altering your natural movements. Increase your power and speed with very limited effort while maintaining an ideal position.
The Ewincher is a real alternative to Electric winches. Weighing only 2.2kgs the Ewincher can be used on any winch straight out of the box. No installation required.
It features three modes of operation:
-Assisted: Ewincher works for you in the ideal position
- Manual: Works just like a standard winch handle
- Combined: Add your speed to the 80rpm of the Ewincher for a speed greater than 140rpm
The Ewincher has a highly efficient brushless motor and gearing system that enables it to constantly deliver 210 Watts of useful energy. It utilises a 25.2V lithium battery with a 3000 MAH capacity, enough for a full days sailing.
Ewincher is the first connected electric winch handle.
Using the Ewincher App, you can adjust the maximum operating power and torque delivered. All sailors will therefore be able to adjust the handle according to their strength or the level of effort they require. Ewincher is so powerful that all users will be able to find the appropriate settings for them. It can also be set to an intermediate level to suit everyone.
What is the best type of anchor for my boat?
The answer is often “more than one anchor, of different types.” The type of bottom, mud, grass, sand or rock will dictate different choices of anchors, as will the size and windage of the boat, the wind conditions and the sea state.
