Windlass Wanted

Recommended Posts

Hi Mitch Have you thought about how you will fit it on the bows, do you have access for a reinforcement plate and access to the bolts/nuts underneath the front bows, many boats have sealed fore decks. will you leave it dangerling or will you lift it on the deck, this will be difficult to do. sorry to maybe dishearten you but winches can be expensive to buy and fit ,unless you can do DIY, and do need thinking ahead to remove disappointment. If you find it hard to break the initial suction, drive the boat forward with the engine to break the weight out, then pull it up onto the deck.  Best of luck. John
