I have a Bavaria 32 (2003) and it has a Lofrans Cayman 88 windlass installed in the anchor locker … as far as I know it was installed when the new boat was fitted out. There is plenty of room and as far as I recall the windlass is bolted onto an existing GRP shelf. I don’t think any difficult work is required.

    Power is run from a Lofrans solenoid (I have fitted a remote system to it) in behind the switch panel. There is no separate battery. All works perfectly and it is a godsend when anchoring.

    You are more than welcome to spend as long as you want looking at my installation … but Bubble is in Fleetwood …
