Windlass Installation - Part 1
|We taped off areas on the chain to create painted |
bands using fluorescent green paint.
|This is one of the finished colored bands--three colored rings equals 90 feet |
of anchor rode (number of bands times 30). This is the same
system that we used on our rope/chain rode for
what is now our secondary anchor rode.
|The hole for the windlass motor was reinforced with a heavy piece of solid |
(red) fiberglass sheet below the boat's deck--this was intended
to distribute loads from the windlass.
