Anchor Winch Installation Yalta 5.35 All rounder

Postby fatjk » Thu Jan 20, 2011 3:07 pm

Hi Guys,
Havinago's pride and joy is a Yalta Craft 5.35 All Rounder, as the poor bugger is feeling his age he made the decision...got to fit a button. A Little Annie drum winch is to be fitted, sight unseen I said I'll fit it for you(dickhead). Investigation revealed this vessel doesn't have a bulkhead or firewall which can support the winch. Whilst there's a will there's a way. Boat taken to a boat builder and there is a way around the problem. These vessels don't have an anchor hatch as the ground tackle was intended to be stored in the cabin on a "tub liner". we shall remove the flimsy glass tray and install a 25mm laminated bulkhead. Where the cross bollard was a roller will be fitted and a rectangular opening cut to allow the rope and chain through. Because of the angle the feed of the rope will be on the bottom of the drum rather than the top.

The bowsprit and cross bollard removed.
Image

Looking down at the open hatch where the ground tackle is stored.
Image

View from cabin looking forward, the "tray" does not go from hull down to the deck, it's 3mm thick.
Image

The first cut is the deepest, tray removed,ready for grinding back to the glass, working in a snowstorm.
Image

Dash, old Hummingbird sounder removed to make room for the switch and circuit breaker.
Image

The new bulkhead will be two pieces of 12mm marine ply glassed together, the layer of glass between the two sheets almost doubles it's strength. As usual the owner always says..while your there can you fit a twin battery system and change over isolating switch. And also fix all the other things which I've been putting off over the years and when will it be ready.
It will be ready when I've finished. Will advise progress reports as I go.

cheers

Hey fatjk,

What are you doing slacking off taking photo's and playing on the computer - back to work!!!.

I think I've been totally spoiled going out in fatjk's boat witha "button".

Cheers :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Progress is slow but you can't rush fibreglass.

Laminated two 12mm sheets of ply with glass between them then fitted a 40mm square timber top to finish it off and strengthen the bulkhead.
Image

Bulkhead glassed in to hull, sanded and ready for Flowcoat
Image

Bulkhead Flowcoated and Flecked, colour match was almost perfect, had to cut and shorten the cushion to fit new profile
Image

Wiring harness made up, control cable is tinned marine grade wire. The main cables are rated at 130 amps, all connections are crimped and soldered. 16 metres are needed for this boat.
Image

Switch and circuit breaker panel mounted ready for wiring.
Image

Now the boat is ready to actually start the winch installation. Have the winch and rotated the motor to suit this installation and will probably mark out the alignment marks tomorrow.

Hi DrDrift,
Don't do tinnies much now too much mucking around as they don't have bulkheads to mount to. Last Aluminium boat I fitted a winch was a 6.5 Quinnie

Had to fabricate a Stainless steel bulkhead
Image

Bolted up and braced to forepeak and you can see struts going back to ribs to even out the load. Plus two bolts through to the floor. Worked well.
Image

Can't really say I've got a trade, mostly self taught.Started work as trainee technician with PMG, 9 years as a Weapon mechanic in the Navy, Brickie's Labourer, Truck Driver, sold Life Assurance, Managed retail shop for 10 years and last job for 12 years was Service Manager for a Electronics company. Now I'm retired I'm a full time beep who does the odd job for mates, mainly on boats..love a challenge.

Hackjob

Yeah I'm pleased, came out well. Took me about 4 hours to sand the bloody thing to shape, as normal both sides of the hull are not symetrical, lot of swearing and getting in and out of the boat. Hopefully be finished by weekend. Got to prepare my own boat and truck for Eden.

cheers

:construct:

fatjk might not have a trade backed by a bit of paper but he is QBE (Qualified By Experience) in the "Quality and Excellence" trade.

A few years in the Navy making sure that all the big guns go
"Boom" out the right end must have honed his skills pretty well.
:camper: :camper: :camper:
Can't wait to get my hands back on the boat - I'm suffering withdrawal symptoms.

I've spended hours just pressing buttons I walk past for practice.

It's Australia day but as I'm working the open no rain means got to move

Winch installed on bulkhead, needs to be rotated to fit but plenty of clearance once in, neat fit and clears hull easily.
Image

View from inside, just the four mounting bolts and the cable, no lost usable space. Cable entry sealed with silicone.
Image


Reversing solenoid mounted on side pocket, out of the way but still readily accessable.
Image

Twin battery system was fitted, mounted the isolating change over switch in an easy accessable position. For some reason some guys mount these switches hidden under the motor well. Can't see much there. These BEP switches are compact and carry a higher amperage rating than some of the cheaper bulky ones. Can be surface mounted also.
Image

Installation is basically complete, tested functions. Waiting for rope, bow roller and anchor to complete the job.

Very well done for a self taught....
especially the bulkhead....Hackjob is spot on in that it looks like it came with the boat from day one.....
As for my tinne I was joking, I have done a couple in the past but top mounts(gypsy type) not drums.... I will eventually "try" to fit a drum myself soon, as dads getting alittle too old to do anchor dutties....so I'll get him one for his birthday in March...
