  1. Windmark winches. I spoke to the agent tonight. Not being a knocker , I came away from the conversation very impressed ,it's not the dollar as I don't care what it costs , it's a winch that fits the boat that what I want , first of all compared to the other models , these are smaller in dimension, less down in the locker , and small two turn capstan on the top is all you want , chain below , same weight as the maxwell who is bigger. Odd ,, the feature of using the capstan separate to the chain capstan is food for thought , hight is lower and others , and change out of $2000 bucks is a plu

    Deck winch

    Ok burning up carbs tonight Looking at anchor locker sizes to accomodate anchor winched , I stumbled accross a theory very simple , a cylindrical tube 450 x 800 that's all that is needed will take most warps and chain easy fitted up to the deck locker lid , comments please

    Deck winch

    At 60 I have always pulled my own anchor , brought up being told , if you can't haul your own anchor and main sll , sell your boat son , so dads gone , and the bloody anchor is getting heavier , so I am after a winch that can do it , should I get a capstan or one of the fancy through deck models , I have 15 mill warp 8 mill chain about a boat and a half , do the winch capstan style work , I need comments , this a serious matter
  12. Doesn't matter how good he is as a sailor it's up to the boat , can it stay afloat , was it lashed together like the warrams. Cats are , can it handle 40 kts on the nose in 4 mtr swell an still sail , a lot of factors to weigh up stupid move on all accounts

    Boat canvas

    Not advertising for any body , but I have to have a say. I priced around for new Bimini cover , the prices were horrendous. So I quised a guy in whanganui the cover man , sent the cover down in a post office $10 box . And back it came , what a beautfull job I cannot get over the Finnish The tidy neat cover , and it fitted perfectly, I sent the lee cloths down to be restricted and refurbished they came back the same like new , so the boom sock followed and that was the same , total saving over half the other quotes in total , just shows you there is realistic folk out there
