Winch in

Wow, that was a hunk of work.

1st I found a nice #30 two speed winch in the used section at Bacon Sails, it was sticky and I got it for $75. It took a couple of hours and 3 cans of Brakclean but I cleaned it up and got it smooth as silk.

Now with section of .25″ steel plate, I made a nice backing plate and mounted it on the cabin roof. Yes that required trimming the wood work and making a rather mess of the floor with saw dust.

But all in all it is in, might be overkill but job is  done.

Now I need to run the reefing lines ( next Job)
