While I am waiting on parts, I did a bit of research and I started drawing the first draft of my electrical winch.
Most of it will be made from POM. It will be designed with a motor inside the drum which will also turn the level wind via a chain.
This first winch will be for surface operations but I am also paying special attention to the possibilities of having the electrics oil filled for subsea use for an eventual TMS.
Of course, I am looking at keeping everything as cost effective as possible.
