I don't like the windlass... not enough gypsy engaging chain. I like the locker ventilation and can't tell what that sink compartment is... is it a dish drain? If so it's a dumb idea since I can't see what it accomplishes. Don't care for the curtains and all the strip planking - too busy looking. But it all might make sense up close.

I agree about the strip planking...it looks like a test pattern!

Is there something about this particular setup, or would you feel the same about any horizontal windlass? It looks like they are getting about 90 degrees of chain in the gypsy.

And Chris - I for one do enjoy this type of post, especially if it leads to a good discussion.

Thanks Paul! OK, ya see the pic down near the bottom, with the stainless workbench? Believe it or not, thats UNDER a dinette in a main cabin! The seating raises electrically to expose the workshop! Too much.

I suppose that's the deal with horizontal windlasses and I don't care for them for that plus most vertical can be used manually like a regular winch. Can't do that with a horizontal.

Well, I could never afford these boats, but I can take detailed pics, bring 'em home, and try to duplicate them on my own yacht. Works like a charm!

Thanks for the pics Chris....I can never get enough of "how other people do it"
Also a big fan of "what works/what doesn't" especialy during a refit.

Chris,
Thanks for the pictures. They're great and as James said... one of our favorite sports at the boat show is to see "how other people do it" and if we like it, we then reproduce it or modify it for our needs. Isn't that one of the main reasons why boat owners go to the boat shows?

I was taking pictures of the dodger/bimini setup on the Passport 51 CC at the boat show and the broker came up with a brochure. He said, "Here's some information on the boat," and I said, "I'm just here for ideas." He gave me sort of a weird look.
