R40 Stern Windlass

Post by panterlo » Sat Feb 16, 2019 12:36 pm

Hi All,

Since I heavily use stern windlass I had to do some modifications to my R40 since it can't be ordered with this from the factory. Someone that has a lot of knowledge of custom installing windlasses on Bavaria boats are https://www.anchorlift.com/. I ordered a windlass with all accessories and simply drilled a hole through the engine room and fitted a basked to hold the chain. The installation turned out like the images below. I used a remote control solution and stuck an emergency button panel in the engine room to avoid running long cables to the dashboard.

Highly recommended.

Nice addition, the only item you should consider adding is a safety wire. It is an extra safety to be used while on the way, see http://bavariaownersforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=794
