Windlass installation

Anyone have any experience with installing a windlass winch on a Hewes Craft Pacific Cruiser? My question is: when running the wire to the control panel through the Vberth are you running it on the side, on the shelf? How are you hiding it? securing it? I can use some zip ties but wanted it to look smooth and not like it was a DIY job. Any suggestions and/or tips would appreciated.



  • I do not have specific knowledge of that boat. 

    If I were wanting a factory-looking install I would find the factory runs for the lighting at the bow of the boat. It might require dismantling the interior.  

    One other option would be to use split loom to run the wires and then secure to shelf with an Ancor Cable Tie Mount.
