Arm, winch servo or home made winch?
« on: February 17, 2018, 07:27:52 AM »
Hello all,

just thinking ahead a bit. I have a fancy drum winch servo for my vintage Marblehead, but I'm thinking a basic winch for the model of Vanity. Or rather a few of them as she's a large gaff rigged cutter with a tops'l and three stays'ls.

Now, I can't really see the point in buying an expensive proportional winch servo when out there on the water is a huge proof of where the sails are everytime you move the stick. So, I'm thinking why not build my own winches, using a plastic worm and wheel set to nullify metal to metal "noise". The beauty of a worm set is that it cannot be pulled backwards, which must be useful.

One for the main, one for the collection of staysails and one for the topsail, although I have no idea how they're manipulated!, so maybe just 2 winches, using simple 6 volt motors. I can make bracketry, spools, etc. Any reason why I shouldn't try this idea from the more experienced yachters.?

Opinions gratefully received.

Thank you

I did not find the right solution from the internet.
