Windlass for 97 Mariner

Postby MICHELLE5197 » July 6th, 2018, 7:17 pm

Hey all- we are trying to figure out which Maxwell Freedom Windlass we have on our 1997 350 Carver Mariner. Is it the RC500 or RC800? We need chain and are trying to determine the size. Any insight?

On top of the unit on the deck, take a look in the socket where you'd put the handle to turn it manually, it will be stamped in there. The motor will also be much smaller if it's a 500. The larger motor of the 800 will look similar to the bigger older starters. This link will take you to the manual. In it you'll see the stamp in the socket and the difference in the motors.
