The RC12 Series windlass from Maxwell (prices range from $4,300 to $5,000) has a maximum pull capacity of 3,500 pounds and a static hold of 4,800 pounds. The RC12’s newly designed anodized gear box is corrosion-resistant and takes up less room on deck than previous models. The RC12 also features Maxwell’s patented Wave Design chainwheel, specially designed to hold fast to the rode with less strain, which will increase its longevity. Maxwell Marine, 714-689-2900
Shed Some Light
The standard, swivel, six-inch deck chocks ($621) from Weaver Industries are a good choice when storing your tender on deck. The six-inch pedestals can swivel to accommodate various size tenders, and can be adjusted to rise up to four inches. With the addition of the removable bases ($320, not shown), the chocks can be taken off the deck when you’ve reached your destination to free up space. Weaver Industries, 208-687-3982
The Aqualuma spreader light ($550) consists of nine LED lights powered by 12- or 24-volt DC power, housed in marine grade aluminum with electrocoating to protect from corrosion. The wide beam illuminates a cockpit or foredeck, good for brightening evening fishing adventures or shedding light on essential areas while working on deck. Aqualuma, 610-772-0155
