mounting a winch
mounting a winch - not a wench
thinking of running lines to the cockpit on an old (1975) grampian 23. this would entail mounting a winch,organizer and clutches on the cabin roof. how should these be attached. is a proper backing plate sufficient? this is not a big boat or a big sail but i know that loads are always more than you really think they are.
i would really hate to tear the roof off!!!!
