Well...........THIS is going to be our windlass ( to haul the anchors and help mooring) This was originally a single gypsy with a single warping drum.Now all the machine shop work has been done, a new shaft for two gypsies and warping drums.Some more "small" workshop mods to be done,some holes re-drilled and tapped and new bolts fitted.Re- assembly and a re-paint,the modifcation to add a hydraulic motor, will complete a very expensive ( bought new) piece of equipment.

Raffy in the workshop putting the finishing touches to one of the beams for the inside of the wheelhouse.We are having a "back canopy" made for the wheelhouse.As the boat is aft end into the prevailing winds here, we need something to let us get along with the wheelhouse interior.If it's not raining - it's windy and both can arrive horizontally!!
Aft side and transome repair has come out well.
Here we have the last remaining jobs inside the foremast. The inlet for the cables at the base,insdie the boat.
Cable outlets at the lower spreaders for the down/decklights under the spreaders and the radar scanner.
