3: Winter 2016-17: The centre-plate winch solution

The first task Simon performed was to repair the “stump” by building-up some new glass-fibre.


He then attached a protective cap onto the stump, which should prevent damage in future.

This cap was beautifully made by one of the local Lymington craftsmen (Stephen Lord of Flux Fabrication and Welding) and is made of 316 stainless steel. It should stand-up well to the salt and damp of the marine environment and not wear as quickly as the previous arrangement.

Here’s how it looks when all reassembled.
