Re: Windlass Installation

Update: The rode makes it down the pipe OK but when the rope pile gets high below deck is when it bunches up. All I do is move the pile then all is well again.

Re: Windlass Installation

I'm using a G40 5/16 chain & 5/8 rope cause the LEWMAR Concept 1 gypsy is a 002 & that is what the manual calls up. The chain is 20 ft long, rope 350 Ft. I know that is way overkill for a 23 footer but the gypsy has to have that size to work right. & there is tons of room under the V berth to accommodate it.

Re: Windlass Installation

what size chain are you using in your anchor rode and how long is the chain ?

Re: Windlass Installation

WindyWay is on the trailer now. She only comes off for sailing, keel work, & hull painting, & hopefully that's all behind me now (except sailing of course). The anchor roller is center on the bow, within a stainless attach bracket. It sticks over about 2 inches & has a loop of metal to keep the rode on it. The bow light is now mounted on the FWD pulpit. For 2 reasons, it's out of the way, and it can be seen farther away when the waves are high.

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

If the rode doesn't make it down the "spout" I'm prepared to have a small motor & 2 rollers pinch the line & power it in, when "UP" is selected. The whole point of this exercise is to single hand.

Re: Windlass Installation

Just curious... we're in the same area. Wish we could bring the boat home like that

The boat is on a trailer beside my house under cover. I have beams & winches there where I can take it off the trailer for hull or swing keel work. In the spring I take it out & it sits in the driveway. Saves moorage & it's close by for all the small jobs that come up somehow during the sailing season. Why do you ask?
