Hello All! Mounting some new to me, Lewmar 43st's. Should I use butyl tape or 4200 or what? Thanks for your input, it is always appreciated. Kevin
Florida,You guys are talking about a backing plate inside the hull, where the nuts go on? Not a plate under the winch, top side? Right? The reason I ask, Is MarkSF talking about polishing a plate nobody's gonna see for the next 20 yrs. Kinda confused my poor little head. It did have little dinky washers on 5/16 bolts. Surprised it lasted this long with no apparent damage. And, of course, I'll seal the holes with epoxy! Who wouldn't? Don't say it! I've seen it before, too. LOL! Thanks guys, you are always helpful.

Maybe its called output gear. Its the gear that drives the drum. I started a thread, http://www.sailnet.com/forums/gear-maintenance/174418-winch-mounting.html asking about bolt material and as threads do, it drifted a bit.Yo, Captainmeme, No pinion gear listed in schematic for 43st. Which gear are you talking about, Please? Kevin
Unless the sealant on the winch base is perfect, and if that's true then core rot should no longer be an issue either, yes corrosion is an issue.Is corrosion below the ceiling of your salon a big problem? G10 would look absolutely crap in that application.
