AHOY!! Either way you slice it you''d be advised to have a SERIOUS backing plate mounted under the foredeck. Dophinite your throughbolts, large washers s.s., ,seal electrical junctions, seperate battery, on a seperate pole(isolated from start and house batteries)......Rev. Mike
I installed a Maxwell 1200 vertical windlass on my '93 40.5. Just turned it 90 degrees from vertical. Works very well.
