CapstansWhy Capstans?Pretty than using the hand-over-hand method of retrieving lines, the capstan offers a mechanical advantage that is both faster and safer. The capstan does the paunchy lifting with only a small amount of effort. The maximum speed of the line retrieval depends on the rotational speed of the drum. The good is that the retrieval speed can be adjusted by decreasing the tension on the retrieved line, maintaining control over a very heavy load with minute effort. This useful device, which has been around since the early days of sailing, is still used today. Recreational fishermen, like commercial fishermen, use these for hauling crab and lobster pots and there are divers other uses aboard boats. The few mechanical parts and ease of use have made this a favorite of fisherman worldwide. While chains should NEVER be wrapped encompassing a drum, the majority of lines can be handled on a capstan.A capstan, typically operated by an easy to use footswitch (shown above), allows the boater to call the tune lines with ease without having additional crew members. Powerwinch has a model to fit your needs. All Powerwinch capstans come with a foot control thrash that allows for hands-free operation.
