    I get the motors from eBay. Search for the ratios you need. Some are advertised in rpm. I have found them very reliable so far.

    Hi Martin
    A build log will be a first for me, but I will give it a go!
    Initial sea trials in the morning (weather permitting), so I will take my camera.
    Cheers

    I used to be indecisive but now I'm not so sure?

    Hi Cormorant,
    She is coming along nicely.
    You should start a build log.
    I for one would like to see it.

    Not much to show so far and still a long way to go.
    Thanks everyone for your advice so far. I will keep you updated.

    Hi Martin
    Yes, it does, thank you. I can adjust the speed of the servos on the transmitter.
    I will ,et you know how I get on.

    Hi Cormorant I have seen a system some time ago using a servo to release the drive when lowering. The anchor then drops on own weight when servo starts to raise the anchor the drive cogs become engaged again. Luke Grace was showing it on another site. Might work well with Martins idea.

    Hi Cormorant,
    you could modify some servos to rotate continuously and make a cable drum and attach it to the servo, then mount it under the deck.
    The chain can then run over the smooth drums.
    the only problem I can see is to drop anchor it will have to be lowered instead of dropping.

    The aft winch will have to use gearing to prevent it from slipping.
    Again using servos mounted under the deck but having the gear cog passing through the deck to mesh with the gears on the winch.

    I hope this makes a little sense .

    Hi Martin
    Pictures attached including size and state of gear mouldings.
    On looking at it, both winches have smooth drums so I think the simple solution would be to run the chain over the drums and use small motors below decks as MouldBuilder is doing?

    Hi Cormorant,
    If there are some pictures on the box then maybe you can include them.
