L440 distance from winlass to the leading edge of the trampolines

I need to buy a new cord to control the winlass. However my boat is seven states away at the moment. Can someone give me this measurement please so I know which cord to order.

L440 - distance from the winlass to the leading edge of the trampolines.


Thanks!

Hello nahbrown the easiest way to go is to buy a remote control kit for a 4wd electtric winch the reciever has only 4 or 5wires and is very simple to wire which i can help you with.the remote controls are water proof and can be fitted on a lanard.then you can walk around the boat and operate the windlass.i have fitted approx 9 units and never had a single failure.i brought the kits off ebay australia but they come from china and cost only $25 aus so l always reccomend to buy 2 kits just to have a spare set.when you are looking for the kits make sure you get 2 remotes as some only come with 1.the only problem is when you recieve them the battery is usally flat Click image for larger version
