IG36 Anchor Winch Pedestal

At AndyG`s request, here are pics of the winch setup on Doriana. Neither Andy`s boat, or a 1983 boat I saw in Queensland had this boxed support. Looks original, except it is a total rebuild as the "box" was cracking at the joins to the bulwarks and had rot. The post support underneath looks much like Sarawana`s.

I built a similar box for a number of reasons. It is a good place for the chain and eazy to keep clean. Drain is well above the waterline
Mostly though to support the Simson Laurance Windlass and bring the handle for the windlass up to an ergronomicly comfortable height.
I am still in the process of building the boat so I cannot tell if it is effective yet.

Bruce do you store any chain in the box structure or does it all go down into the chain locker?

I'm assuming that your fastening points look similar to mine

Here's the way the later IG32 foredeck looks.

Seems there are many ways of approaching this, David`s is particularly neat. Andy`s clearly shows the underneath supporting plate. A winch exerts a lot of power, so it needs firm locating. Rvanvoris, make sure you incorporate good support under the box for your winch.
Andy, the chain goes below into the anchor locker (where I had head and arms changing the footswitch). I store the snubber, a strop for extending public mooring lines, pipe arm for winch gypsy, and an unused Anchor Buddy I got with the boat .
The IG Europa I saw in Qld. had a teak grate from bulwark to bulwark, but was open underneath.
Note my aft port winch fixation cannot bolt through, it needs a coach-screw into wood, but the screwhole is "screwed". To avoid R&R of the winch, I`m trying devise cleaning the hole out and epoxying a plug into it, winch still fitted. I think it can be done.
