Tanzer 16 Pedestal - Snubbing Winch B

Tanzer 16 Pedestal - Snubbing Winch B -- February 24, 2014 -- After fussing around a bit with different ideas for making a  pedestal with wood, I decided that the quickest, easiest (maybe best) way was to have something fabricated out of stainless steel sheet metal.  Drew up a little sketch and full-size orthographic drawing on plywood.  First shop referred me to the only one in town that can bend really heavy sheet metal. They will have it done by Friday.  Using 12 gauge stainless (about 1/8" thick), the heaviest their sheet metal break can handle.  I will round the corners, ease the edges, and drill the holes.

Little sketch.

Full-size orthographic drawing showing front, top, side, layout.  Didn't have big paper, but some 1/8-inch  plywood did the job.
Then went online and ordered a small snubbing winch; the base is only 3 1/2 inches in diameter.  We'll see how it goes together next week.
