Winch pods Moving of

winches aft. or just finding a place for then closer to the wheel. I will take pics for this. When I single hand the winches are of course forward of the wheel. I keep thinking.. "If I build a pod..." but they can't be inboard too much on the coaming top because of the laz lids. the fuel fill, then the bimini...

I do dream of new self-tailers too.

I was thinking of using SS or Alum Tube. (large) and cutting it longways to the angle of the coaming, topping it with teak or FG board.inside would be a very sturdy block of white oak bolted through the coaming. sound like a plan?

I think we're having a problem following what the tubing is for?

Pics would help. Using tubing for what?

I don't think most folks move winches, they either curse at them, or change boats.

I've heard of people moving primaries to the cabin top to get weight out of the back, but I guess I'm confused about how it's a problem unless the Oday's coaming is very diferent than C320 above?

Hey! dats my boat! LOL thanks Brian! yes, the coaming tops are very narrow! and the Fuel fill is right behind the port cleat behind the winch.

zz, the big tubing would be like cut for a half round to mount against the coaming winch on top

On mine the Bimini attachments are right where I'd want to put the winches.

*wonders who's going around taking pics of her boat*

They do something similar for the older cape dory boats, with a bronze winch mounting step that bolts to the deck and coaming. I don't see any reason you can't do something similar for your boat. However, I wouldn't go with aluminum or stainless steel, but would recommend going with bronze or glassing in a support base for the winch.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
