Some of you might say "why do you need a windlass on a 20' boat?" Well I got tired of pulling in close to 300' (man power:hammer ) of line by myself for the last two months of fishing in the middle of long island sound. Sometime the fishing wasn't good but stayed put because I didn't want to pull anchor.... Well finally got around to installing a windlass.

Removed the cleat and made the cutouts. Measured 2,3,4 times before cutting (didn't want to be on top of the anchor locker cover).

Used Epoxy, 4200, backing boards (above and below deck) all the good stff before tighting the bolts.

Relocated the cleat, sealed it with 4200 and done.... Ran the wires down the starboard side in through the cabin and stopped off at the helm (for a switch) and continued down the starboard side to the transom and around to the house battery in the port side.

Sweet!!!I have been trying to sell the wife on getting a windlass, After she saw the price she said she will stick to retrieving the anchor herself. So my plan is to anchor in six foot breakers on the lake then I should have one.
I also like the latch on the locker cover.

I want a windlass so bad that I would wash the dishes for a week! I've been pulling this boat for the last 5 years, 3k+ lbs. make a fellar old fast.
Nice Job!

Just told My wife to look at the pictures, she said " I thought you had that already", Is that an opening to sneak out and get one installed......and Bill her?:D

Fish, Now is your chance! Buy one and tell the wife you have it in the garage and haven't had the time to put it on.

Yea, I can just hear it now...." When did you get that?" and I'd say.." Oh this old thing?, I bought it years ago, just never wore it...ah, used it". :D

When she see the bill, I'll tell her, They charged the account after it was installed. not when it was bought.....Muhahahahaaa.......hummm,.... she'd kill me.

Gentlemen,

I always go by the two week rule when I decide to buy something. Two weeks before I mention that I am looking at whatever my next "acquisiton" (read toy) is going to be. Then I buy it. If she says "whats that"? I simply say "Oh, remember I told you about it two weeks ago"? Worse case is she will moan about it for two weeks after and then forget it. They never stay mad at you forever. Two weeks of moaning and fussing is a small price to pay for our toys. Trust me, it works. I have been doing it this way for close to 39 years now and it has never failed me.

I want to install a windlass on my Trophy 2102. There is a write up for this in the forum but I can't see the pictures. Can somebody help or does anyone have pictures of one?
Also - what model windlass would you recommend?
Thanks,
Mike E.

For those of us that cannot afford a windlass.... Google "Anchor retrieval systems". That system actually works. The boat retrieves the anchor, and you just have to retrieve the line. There are a couple of advantages to the system. The most important one if that you'll never get swamped by a rogue wave. It's the buoy that anchored to the bottom, and you set the distance away from it that you like. Secondly, it allows you to fish away from your anchor line which reduces fouling your fishing line around your anchor line (ever done that??). It's not as sexy as a windlass, but a whole lot cheaper. They use them a lot for halibut fishing off of the West Coast of Vancouver Island.

Get a 15kg Bruce anchor, that will make her want a windlass.
