  • Windlass

    I have a 1987 23 ft cc mako does anyone know if I can install a lewmar windlass on it?

    Im also looking for some info on what windlass to use. I have an ‘88 221. Not a lot of real estate up there and I need to use my bow cleat for my mooring. Can anyone share pics of their setup?

      Well I already started working on my windlass project. I bought a lewmar v700 and l’m waiting for the roller anchor.
      Already cut out right above the anchor locker to have access to install windlass and move the navigational lights and removed the mooring cleat. I’ll post pictures when I can.

          Mounting the anchor roller is the hard part. I added a raised platform between the front raised piece and the lip at the back. I didn't make the platform wide enough for a windlass, though. I wanted an anchor roller where I didn't have to stuff the anchor through the little anchor locker door every. This is what I ended up with.

            Well today we rerouted the wires for the navigational lights and filled in the holes of the light and cleat had to open another hole to run the wiring

              I haven’t quite figured out how I’m doing it, but wanting to keep it slick and all under deck. I’ll be following.
