Electric Slipway Winch at Cardiff Bay YC…..

The chatter about slipway winches continues.  Idris Dibble from Cardiff Bay sent these photos in (double click to enlarge)

This is a nice electric winch application – pretty mature, maybe dating back 30 years says Idris.  If they had to do one again, their engineer says he might look at electric winches from the front of scrapped land rovers and see if they could be made to service this load. (Would a land rover winch be a bit slow? Does anyone know?)

  1. You could increase the diameter of the capstain or add gearing between the motor and capstain to increase the ratio.
