Problem attaching halyard winch to mast

I haven't been able to find a source for the mounting plates which the winch is bolted to before the winch and mounting plate are attached to an aluminum mast. Stainless would be preferred.

You may have to have a plate made. Use aluminum to avoid galvanic issues.

You might consider welding on. All of ours are welded up through Lewmar 55. If its small you may be able to bolt on or use SS.

found this one.

You could also use teak winch pads.

Re: Problem attaching halyard winch to mast

I made my own plates for halyard hammers from aluminum plate and some channel. Not too tough. Then bolted on.

Re: Problem attaching halyard winch to mast

I used these. Rig Rite is difficult to get in touch with at times but keep trying. Last I remember the prompt system wasn't working correctly but I found that holding the button down a little longer made the prompts work. I know, crazy.

I think they were $99 if memory serves me correctly and they are stainless.

Used 8 bolts tapped into the mast with insulators.
