of Lone Star Marine anchoring systems and other anchoring accessories for the San Diego area. After revolutionizing the Australian boating market with the manufacture of high quality, waterproof anchor winches, Lone Star Marine has joined forces with us to distribute their range of products to the San Diego market which is still dominated by the inferior Windlass and drum winch systems. Forget traditional capstan windlass winches and experience the benefits our drum winch systems can bring to your boating experience including installation location flexibility, jam free operation and powerful pulling power. Feel free to give us a call. We’re here to help and can spec out the perfect anchor system for your boat.
When selecting the best winch for your boat you should account for
In some situations a very large boat may only require a small winch or a smaller boat may require a larger winch. For example, a pontoon boat travelling in shallow river systems might not need a large winch. If you are unsure please feel free to contact our staff for advice.
Windlass style winches have been the mainstay of the winch market for years. This doesn’t necessarily mean they are the best. Windlass winches are known for their unreliability, jam prone operation and short life cycle.
Drum winches on the other hand can be installed anywhere on your boat. Because Lone Star Winches are waterproof it doesn’t matter where you put them. They work in tandem with the vertical force of gravity and spool evenly over the drum meaning a enhanced ease of operation.

DuraBrite™ began with a vision to create advanced lighting solutions to excel across extreme weather applications and operational environments, from crab fishing in Alaska’s Bering Sea, to hazardous construction and demolition environments.
Combining military-grade materials and highly engineered packaging techniques, DuraBrite products balance brightness, color rendition accuracy, beam uniformity, beam spread angle, temperature control, and the weight and feel of each luminaire to help you do your job safely with the best overall illumination possible. This puts the DuraBrite family of products, including the DuraBrite Pro, Standard, and Mini Series marine lights, in a class of their own, as seen on smash hit fan favorite TV shows like Nat Geo Channel’s “Wicked Tuna” and Animal Planet’s “Whale Wars”.
The municipal safety, recreation, law enforcement, national defense, and commercial fishing industries were among the first to call upon DuraBrite to support and protect their workforce. In these sectors, safety remains a top priority, and visibility relies upon lights with both high optical output and low energy consumption. To aid ease of mobility, our products must be lightweight but tough as nails and virtually indestructible to survive the elements and daily use.
