Clutch Lever for Maxwell VW 500 Windlass

Part #: Z3537
This replacement clutch lever is for boats that have the Maxwell VW 500 windlass installed on the boat. Catalina 320, Catalina 34 MkII, and Catalina 36 MkII's used the VW 500 starting around 2001. On some boats, larger windlasses were available as optional equipment, so verify that your boat has the VW 500 before ordering this clutch lever. See "May we also suggest" below if you have a VW 800, 1000, or 1500 windlass.
This simple part, if it were domestic dimensions, could be reproduced from simple bar stock. Unfortunately its metric dimensions, 6mm thick x 19mm wide, make it difficult to easily reproduce in your shop. Add very limited demand that prevents mass production to the fact that the part had to be shipped half way around the world to get to your door, and the result is a ridiculously high sale price for this item. If you can find a way to fashion one for yourself, we would recommend it, but if not, we have them available.
