Power Windlass

How can I mount an electric power windlass on my 33.5? The anchor locker isn't very deep for flaking the road.

my problem precisely

the anchor locker is shallow; and...you don't want to mount a windlass in the lid since is has light hinges to handle the stresses. I've accepted mounting the windlass aft of the locker. I looked for something to feed the rode forward, which requires it to reverse the rode 180 degrees; not simply drop it 90 down into the locker. Couldn't find what i was looking for. I'm now looking (on line) at a Lofrens capstan style windlass t 700; I imagine I'll wrap the rode around the capstan a few times then feed it forward into the locker by hand. This will require a motor intruding into the v-berth; maybe i can live with that.

Major Remodeling

I saw another 33.5 with a vertical power winch mounted just aft of the anchor locker. However, it appears they still have to hand lay the rode inside the locker.
I was thinking of the possiblity of cutting out an area in the bottom of the locker, right at the front. This would open up an area leading down into the forward berth which would then need some fabrication. Ultimately opening a shute for the rode to fall into. This is still speculation at the moment.
I am still wide open to ideas or suggestions......
