This is the rebuilding of a 1975 Cal 2-27 sailboat. The interior was striped to a bare hull less the bulkheads. Enclosed are the photos of the progress and a lot of how to do stuff for the do it yourself boat builder.

Well you can now say that I am no longer a minimalist. Yes with the addition of this Lofrans Windlas and 150 ft. of 5/16 chain and 2 Group 27 batteries my anchoring needs are set (no pun intended). I can assure you I sleep better at night. Besides if you have to weigh anchor in rough seas, a windlass makes the job possible besides safer. It is overkill no doubt but I rather have to much than not enough.
Oh yea at the end of the chain is a new and absolutely quick setting anchor, the Mantus 35 lb. Its new on the market. The you tube is a must see for this amazing anchor. I can testify that it does work as advertised. An added bonus is you can disassemble the anchor flat with the bolts it comes with. I keep mine assembled on a bow roller. The anchor is extremely tough and well built. I was initially skeptical but now have become a believer in the Mantus anchors. Try one, you wont be disappointed.
