Hi Everybody!

I have to remove my Lewmar windlass. Has anybody any experience/suggestion/photos about how to access the bolts and the cable connection without remove the entire roof of the forward cabin. What part of the roof has to be removed?

Thanks a lot

GC

I think you can simply unscrew it from the top since it is taped in Aluminium. What ist your plan?

In my 400/2009 there are no screw on the top, the bolts and the cables are accessible from the internal part side located on the top of the forward cabin

Hi there, I'm in your exact condition, how did you solve at last? I have a 2011 Hanse 400 and no access can be obtained from above. How did you access to cables and pins from the forward cabin?

Today I started making an inspection port form the forward cabin. Cutting the port in the cabin I realized there is a thin empty and then the fiberglass... I'm planning to do double cut, both in the cabin panel and in the fiberglass to reach the pins and cables of the windlass... 
Anyone did this before?

I had to reseal my forward stanchions - which meant I had to remove the entire "bulkhead". As in the prvious comment it is actually only a flimsy fibreglass panel. On my 370 it was simply sikaflexed into place except for the bottom edge that was somehow screwed into the actual bulkhead. The bottom edge required some leverage to persuade it to come free but the rest was easy. Removing it gives you access to the underside of the windlass as well as the wiring loom as well as two of the three forward stanchions.

It's not easy to understand each other without images... 
Cutting the internal panel I found no direct access to the cables etc, I just found myself in front of a fibreglass panel with the characteristic green color. I suppose I'll have to drill this second panel to access the cables. Am I right? Where exactly is the access? From down-under or front? I mean, standing in the cabin and looking towards the anchor, do I have to drill on the panel I'm looking at or do I have to lie on the bed looking at the ceiling, slipping under the "bulkhead" and drilling there?

I suggest that you buy an USB inspection camera, size of an AA battery with 3m of cable. I did that when I needed to find a path for my TV antenna cable from the mast-foot down to the nav area. Mine was 30 at a local swedish dealer. http://biltema.se/sv/Bil---MC/Verktyg-och-Verkstadsutrustning/Testinstrument-och-Elektronik/Inspektionskamera-USB-15343/
Then you can look around accessing from the inspection port you already made.

Hi everybody, solved the issue at last.
I post here my experience for future uses.
There is no proper way to access the windlass from the front cabin if not removing the upper portion.
I created an inspection port with hinges by cutting the panel. The cables are connected in an irreversible way, I changed this to a plug-unplug state using solar panels connectors..
Feel free to contact me via PM if you need assistance.

Hello all,
I searched the Forum and found this thread as I am facing the same situation, whereby I need to remove my windlass and I cannot find any access from the top. Is it confirmed that the bolts holding the windlass are accessible from below after the bulkhead is removed? I hope someone who has already done this can advise. Is there any other way to do without removing the bulkhead?

Mine is a 2007 Hanse 400e and the windlass is Lewmar pro series.
