Sail winch

Postby karl1 » Fri Oct 15, 2010 12:01 am

I have a scratch built 45" Motor sailer and will be using two 120G EXI Servo w/ Continuous Rotation B1226 sail winches, one for the sail sheet and the other for raising and lowering the main sail (gaff rigged). The sail sheet will need about 12 " travel, which the winch will handle with 3 rev's. The main sail winch will need about 30" , but my understanding is that these winches only have 3 rev's (12" of line) and are digital. Can these winches be altered to provide more rotations or should I go with a motor and reducer with no rotation limit? Any info will be useful. Thanks -- Karl1
