Windlass for the 734

I am using the Zodiac Hurricane 733 with outboards.

Since I had an accident and my left shoulder is damaged I cannot pull the anchor from the water without an outside help. Most of the time I have no crew.

I want to install the anchor windlass. Mr. Biff recommended that I would use an under the tube system and modify the anchor box. It's a very good idea, but I have two fuel feeders for two tanks in the bow and the fuel vents.

I believe it should be easier to install the windlass on the and the anchor box and perhaps put the roller over the tube.


Does anyone have any advice and pictures to illustrate. I only saw the similar system on a Sea Legs 770.

Thanks.
Yevgeny

Take a look at this windlass on a Pro 850 for some inspiration...

Thank you very much. I am familiar with the Z850. It has an under the tube windlass. I can install an under the tube anchor if I relocate the fuel tank fillers and vents. They are seen on the top picture in the very forward part of the bow. Hence why I am interested in a electric anchor system on the top of the tube. Thanks

Running over the top of the tubes will chafe heavily unless a GRP pulpit with a bow roller is installed.

Thank you!
I realize that a pulpit and roller will be necessary. I am looking at pictures and see that a lot of Italian and Greek RIBs have them integrated with the anchor boxes.
Another approach Rayglass used on their Protector 8.5m, they had a windlass on the top of the Sampson Post.

I can fabricate an anchor box with a winch and pulpit, but I will have to redesign the fuel system and relocate the fillers aft.

I asked my question here on the USA part of the board because I hope that ppl here are more familiar with the Hurricane 733.

I've thought about a windless too but just cause I'm lazy . I found these pictures somewhere.

What's the story on an undertube windless? Pictures? Never mind, I watched the video above. Wow, take my money now!! I want that.

bigtalljv - that was "Red Rocket" out of Marina del Rey. All stainless on that boat was done by Riley Marine in Long Beach - same place that did my swim step.

I mounted a roller to the bow stuffing strap and reinforced it with stainless rods as shown in the pictures. I could handle the anchor by hand or using the winch mounted to the cabin - don't see any reason a winch could not be mounted to the bow post if appropriately reinforced. It worked well in many extreme situations - avoided anything rigid forward of the tubes, the stuffing strap absorbed the chafe and the flexibility of the tubes softened some hard jerks. can't seem to find better pictures so hope you get the general idea.....

Thank you, Bryan! Very useful information, as usual.
