Re: Installing a new winch

I see backing plates on deck cleats, but usually only washers under winch bolts. Be sure the lines lead to the winch properly so they dont override, use an angled pad if necessary. See Harken: Winches Magnify People Power

Be sure to seal any core that you drill through, see Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape
