Windlass Installation Finally Done!

Well the windlass is finally done! A bigger job than I thought. Pictures below are from the finished work. Solenoids are placed beside the windlass motor in the FWD stowage upper port side. The 3" white pipe ended up to be at an angle of 11 deg & was 30" long under the FWD settee. You can see the rope exiting this pipe from the cockpit if the cover is left off this stowage area. The rope does not bind up in the pipe but does stop once the pile gets too high so I have to jump inside & scoop the pile AFT. But it works great to my relief
