Power windlass for UK 33/35 CK

Postby arrancomrades » Tue Sep 25, 2018 11:16 am


Advancing years are making me think of fitting a 12v windlass with 10mm chain gypsy and warping drum. This would replace the trusty old manual windlass that has served me well for 18 seasons and was already pre-owned when my father bought it in 1963 - see photos. Problem is that I can't find anything that fits without either being ugly or needing modification which I've still to tackle the suppliers about.

Fall-back, if I actually go ahead with the project might be to put a vertical windlass on the starboard side of the coach roof, beside the fore hatch which means sacrificing most of the hanging locker but has compensating benefits, like moving the weight aft.

I would appreciate details of any installations that are satisfactory. Home for a few days than away again so limited in ability to discuss. Thanks.
