Removing the Old Winches
Different Bolt Patterns
|This photograph shows the two different bolt patterns--the old and the new. |
The new pattern has 3/4-inch diameter holes for filling with epoxy
whereas the old (smaller) holes were not oversized and filled with epoxy.
|This photograph is looking up at the underside of the coaming where the holes |
have been taped with duct tape prior to filling the holes with epoxy from
above. Prior to drilling the final holes through
the epoxy, we pulled this tape off.

the epoxy lining is approximately 3/16-inch.
Installing New Winches
|One of our new self-tailing jib sheet winches--this one is on the starboard side. |
On the starboard side, the self-tailing arm had to be oriented about
45 degree forward of abeam while the port side had to be
oriented about 45 degrees aft of abeam.
