windlass wiring

Post by Timothyamoll » Thu Jun 29, 2017 4:16 pm

Good afternoon,
We are figuring out our 32 #48 . It has the original Quick electric windlass. Simple question is there a main breaker some were for it ?
Thanks
Tim

Ours is on the aft edge of the port salon settee. The wire is big, so they tend to want to keep the runs short and direct. It will be somewhere in a straight line between the windlass and the battery.

Hello
I found the switch in the port motor well up high ! Was interesting the wiring from the directional switch box was under the starboard settee and ran aft towards the switch panel area. Just spent 4.5 nice days on the boat and other than wishing it carried more water it's great !
Cheers
Tim
