Re: Mounting ST winches - where to point the arms?

Reminds me of the semi-custom 45-footer that a friend had built at a yard with a fairly doof reputation. Four self-tailing winches in the cockpit, all installed with the tailing arms installed in the exact smae orientation, relative to the boat. Which made the portside ones just fine, and the starboard sides ones totally useless.

From which one might learn that "the right way" is a mirror image, not an identical position, on the opposite sides of the boat.

Re: Mounting ST winches - where to point the arms?

Well, I removed the old winches, filled the holes, drilled new holes and fitted the new winches today. The port side arm points at about 120degrees, the starboard about 300 degrees. Basically how the instructions said. Seems OK like that.
