    Default More of the Electra Dyne install

    here's a shot of the motor/gearbox installed, we had to turn the motor/gearbox on its side so it would fit in the cabinet, now its easy to run the power wires to the back of the motor

    We first tried to just drill holes for the shaft and mounting bolts of the gearbox mount but the main shaft was a bit too short for this to work so Kip got the sawsall out and blew a big hole in the cabinet for the unit to fit in easier, it all gets covered by the backing plate so it will never be seen and a bead of 5200 on the back edge of the backing plate keeps it watertight. The owner was a bit freaked out that we were "drilling holes" in his new boat.

    Steve,

    I take it there will be a davit or pulley somewhere to keep the line off the side of the boat when pulling pots. Where will the davit/pulley mount? Also, if I understand this correctly the puller will generate a lifting force, and therefore on the box that it is mounted in. It seems like this box was not designed for that type of force and there would be the risk of separation at the base. Are you putting some form of a bracket on the inside to transfer the force, or are you relying on the fiberglass for that?

    It definately takes care of the need to put up and take down the puller like most boats have to deal with.

    The davit will be mounted off of the pipe frame/stays that hold the cabin top/roof assembly. The box/cabinet that the hauler is mounted in is part of the cockpit liner its all one piece of moulded fiberglass you'd have to peel the whole liner out of the boat to bust it. The wall thickness of the box/cabinet the hauler is mounted in is a fiberglass/plywood sandwich and it has 1" of plywood in it so it ain't go'in nowhere.
