Non-skid doesn't seem aggressive - it's typical. I tend to overthink things as I envisioned these breaking off under load thus loosening the windlass. The deck is flat at this location and the reason I didn't use a block of teak
under the windlass is because I'd have to also raise up the chain splitter and a few other issues. This is an Ideal H1F Windlass which is a great piece of machinery but doesn't mount like most others (e.g., separate holes for wiring
and cover is mounted independently).
I was planning to use 4200. Seems 5200 would make it difficult to repair/maintain.
The PSC has a thoughtfully engineered raised/flat platform for the windlass that's over an inch thick with cored plywood
. I still glassed in 1/2" FRP below this for a backing plate.
Any suggestions for wiring
(1/0)? I was just planning wrap a few turns of electrical
tape for added protection and silicone in separate hole for each wire. (If they ever have to be replaced, it's only a three foot run to the solenoid.)
