Re: Short arm winch handle source?
see if you can find a square aluminum rod to fit your windlass. Cut it long enough so you can attach a lever arm which is above / does not interfere with the pulpit. You can make the arm from the the remainder of the rod and bolt it to the "tall shaft" .. you can make a handle and they all can be attached with bolts and thumb turn nuts... and "fold flat" for stowing.... You're making a very tall fold up winch handle!
pay attention... someone's life depends on it
