I have a Kobelt 2042 LW1. The brochure is here
but note that for some unknown reason they don't list
the W option I have (and didn't when I got it either).
L = polished brass finish
W = removable handle
1 = neutral position is handle up
The brochure does not have a picture of the removable
handle. It is brass with a black knob at the end.
This option is good for when you are sailing and don't
want sheets to catch on it.
The unit is die cast silicon bronze with stainless steel hardware.
Kobelt calls it heavy duty. Indeed, it is massive overkill.
It didn't take too many experiences with an unreliable control
to convince me that this one was worth every penny. Which
was $484 Canadian when I bought it. Add tax and cables etc.
The reason to keep the boat after putting this in is so you
can enjoy it longer. It has great look and feel and works
great too. No regrets, I'd do it again in a flash.
