Replying to:Raising drop keel
The previous owner has installed an electric winch on my RL24 previously named Calibre (sail No 303) It is very convenient and fast and the keel can be raised from the cockpit with a switch. The time will come when something goes wrong-flat battery and so on so I am looking at a manual system as a backup. The original system with multiple pulleys is still there but are there easier ways to do this? A hand winch in the cabin? Or using the jib winches?
