    Default Captsan head on a Electra Dyne here it is!

    Here's a new add on i'll have for the ED's this year. Capstan, Gypsy or whatever you want to call it head. Nice for lifting loads, hauling anchors etc. It can be ordered on a new hauler or i'll have the "kits" to retro fit haulers that are already in use. I didn't completly install this one in the picture but you can see how they mount and get a idea of the size. Best of both worlds, a line hauler and a capstan all in the same unit.

    Do you think that baby will pull my 44lb bruce? On a side note I figured out why I was so cranky all weekend, I went to bed w/ a full fledged cold/flu and didn't sleep a wink so I'll probably hold off coming over to pick up that patch web till I shake this crap

    I haven't weighed it but i'm thinking around 10lbs extra for the head & new shaft so the total for hauler and head is aprox 75lbs.

    Simple math will point out the increased side load of this arrangement. As the distances increases from your backing plate, the force on that head go's up considerably. As long as you have a solid mount it would probably be fine but you could still get your pervebial tit in the ringer with this get up! I see bearing problems on the horizon!

    I'll be watching this one a while and waiting for user feed back.
