windlass question

Recommended Posts

Thinking about adding a windlass to my 2002 260 sig. after looking at them I have what I hope isnt a dumb question. The shelf that it will sit on is on the starboard side. But it seem most windlass have "pully" on the starboard side of the motor so it seems the rode wouldnt line up..Am I looking at them wrong?? Maybe I'm over thinking it

The drum on the windlass has to be on line with the rode.  

Yep, or as close as you can get. + or - a inch should not hurt.
