Windlass for a MT 36 DC

need to put a windlass on this MT 36 DC. Would be interested in seeing pics or hearing descriptions of how it’s been accomplished on similar boats.

How about a few pics from you of your foredeck so we can see what you have. Many boats are similar but not the same and it can make a difference.

A Lofrans Tigres would be suitable for the boat size. I installed one on my 32, different boat, about 5 yrs ago and it has done what I asked .

That's going to be an intersting install. Look into Lewmar. You may need some modifications for the chain to drop through the hawse into the locker.


Not sure of the model but notice the chrome pipe for the chain to drop through.

That's pretty much what I did with a similar setup. I had a Powerwinch installed when I bought FlyWright. The existing pulpit included a box below the pulpit that now conceals the SS chain tube to the anchor locker.

Instead of quoting everyone I'm going to ask these questions directly.


@FlyWright, what model is your windlass, if you don't mind sharing. It's a bout the size I was planning for my boat build. I ass-u-me it's set up for a certain type of 5/16ths chain.





@Trawler Sandpiper, does your PW also have provisions for pulling chain in? I'm not sure I would attempt to pull chain with a drum winch. Maybe I'm not seeing your set up correctly.

Don't mind at all...

That's a Lewmar Pro Series 1000 with power up and down. There's a similar Pro Fish model that's freefall down. It handles 5/16 chain and 5/8 Brait.

I have a CT 35 sun deck and added a Lewmar Pro1000. Seems to be fine. My install looks a bit more straight forward than yours. I added a wireless control as well as the wired set up comes in handy and is what I typically use as I can move around on the boat while anchoring

Thanks. I never considered the free fall option. It could be useful in deploying the anchor quickly altho less contorlable.

Are you using a hosting service like Photobucket, Flickr or directly uploading to the forum?
