Parts for 70' steel junk rigged schooner

Looking for used parts to complete single-handed design and construction of schooner, location Wisconsin, heading to Roatan carrying aid and volunteers. Started 30 years ago with no money, 15 tons of steel plate and a Hobart cracker box. Finally seeing light at end of tunnel, or is that weld flash.
Parts needed-
Bow thruster at least 280 lbs thrust, electric
Anchor windlass for 3/8" chain electric
Diesel generator 7~10 Kw
Electric winch for halyards.
Reverse osmosis water maker.
1/2" line for sheets and halyards.
60~80 lbs anchor

Don't know, will look later this morning in warehouse and send you some pictures. I can say that both have heavy coating of galvanizing on them.

as primary anchors for that sized boat you should be using 90lb anchors and a min 250 ft of 1/2" chain.

14mm or 5/8" would also be recommended for halyards,and 16mm for sheets.

we are 63 ft and 26 tons and get away with 10mm chain with 2x 95lb bugel anchors, as kedge anchors I have a 45lb cqr,and 55lb Breton type danforth.

not worth the risk of using under sized ground tackle imho.

Re: Parts for 70' steel junk rigged schooner

3/8 Stayset x parallel core, 5300lbs breaking strength. If you are doing a multipurchase halyard for your junk it should be plenty strong. And def. for junk sheets. They don't get loaded up at all. White with red flecks. Lots . Buy more than 500, 55 cents a foot. Else 65.

Re: Parts for 70' steel junk rigged schooner

3/8" chain it too small. You are better of to go too heavy. The anchoring system is also a safety device that should be able to stop or hold in any conditions. Use a winch that works with chain stored in a chain locker below the water line. Not a winch that reels the chain on deck like some commercial boats do.
