windlass system

Postby Abear » November 16th, 2013, 9:25 am

I just bought my brother-in-laws 1986 3207 aft cabin. He owned it with his father who became I'll and wanted out. My question is regarding the installation of a windlass system. Which brand fits this boat. They had attempted installing one, but ordered one from catalog. I'm looking for brand and model that someone else has working on their boat. Thanks.

Every brand has one that fits. You'll need to go to each website and download the drawings, then determine if it fits. Tou will also have to consider the electrical requirements and main wire run.
Me, I am partial to "Ideal" brand vertical, which I had on my 4207.
Thanks
