Windlass for single-door anchor well
« on: December 16, 2003, 08:11:54 PM »

Hi,
 
 I have looked at the project for a vertical windlass fitted to a double-door anchor well.  It looks great but doesn't look like that installation would work as well for a single-door well.
 
 Has anyone added a windlass to a Mk I with a single-door well?
 
 Thanks,

Anchor Windlass

 I did a FIND on "anchor windlass"  and only came up with double doors.
 
 Don't know if you've tried that FIND on this message board.
 
 It may help you out.

I am a Catalina 30 owner and installed a Sprint 400 verticle on my boat several years ago without splitting the door. I will try to get some photos this weekend and post them.For some basic information, I glued two pieces of 3/4" marine plywood together, cut the configuratrion of the windless in it and bolted the board into the anchor locker. It took a lot of planning and measuring, but it works fine.
 
 This is a great message board for all boat owners and I have really gotten some great idesa from it.

I meant to add that I did have to cut the configuration of the windlass in the center of the existing anchor locker hatch, but no reinforcing was required as the hole was not too big.

I have pictures of the windlass that is installed in my single door 1990 model.  Send your email address to kenneth.juul@je.jfcom.mil and I'll send them to you.

Thanks for the info and suggestions.
 
 What's the best way to contact Catalina?  I tried email a while ago and got no response.

 They'd don't do electronic communication very well.
 
 Pick up the phone and speak to a live person.  Robert Butler has been very helpful.  Best to call in the mornings, California time.

Can't find the post, maybe it was an email.  I was asked what kind of windlass do I have.  It is made by Maxwell. I don't have any supporting paperwork and didn't have time to pull the front panel when I visited the boat yesterday.  Comparing to the current Maxwell catalog the closest match is an "Anchor Max" mounted horizontally.  www.maxwell-windlass.com if the link doesn't work.
