Fast and efficient windlass repair by Palmawatch

…leaves a happy captain on MY Always Believe.

When Helen and Daniela from Palmawatch client services were walking the docks in Port Adriano checking if all was OK after a severe storm ripped through Mallorca, David Horn the captain of the 40 metre superyacht MY ‘Always Believe’ invited them onboard for a chat.

A couple of Lofrans windlasses had not been running as smoothly as they should be for a while, and Captain Horn enquired if it was possible for Palmawatch to take a look and rectify the problems, prior to the yachts 10-year survey coming up.

As this video shows, Mehdi and Jose the technicians from Palmawatch went onboard and managed to get the windlasses running like Swiss clocks!

The work scope entailed completely dismounting both windlasses, cleaning and servicing all working parts, disassemble motor, clean and replace bearing, megatest 2nd motor, machining of clutch cones, supply and fit new seals and gaskets.

Palmawatch a yacht service fit for discerning owners,

 and committed to making captains happy!
