  1. I am looking for a full cover for my 1999 262 cruiser that has the extended swim platform. I am having a hard time finding a custom fit one that will fit over the platform. Has anyone bought a custom or semi-custom cover for the 262? I am in the northeast (philly burbs) so I need something a little heavier for the winter. My goal is to find something that will replace yearly shrink wrapping. Thanks in advance for your time. Joe
  2. Thanks for the feedback, I emailed a forum member who was talking about it in another thread and he indicated he got at the wires from the locker. I am going to recap my install here for reference: After closer inspection and some reaching and feeling I found the wires up front zip tied to the horn bracket up under the starboard side of the anchor locker. Thanks Monterey for prewiring this boat! Just enough slack to get at them and wire up the lewmar. I went with a pro sport 550. I had plenty of room on the shelf to mount it and keep it towards the back. Found the other end of the windlass wires at helm tied and hung just above and fore of the access panel in the mid-berth. Mounted breaker and control on removable panel on helm. Had 1 issue with the panel being too thick for the switch to mount through the hole. I milled it out on a small drill press in 3 passes and created a recess 1/4 inch or so (pic included) Here are some pics so far, I am finishing it up tomorrow and will update. Panel Locker with unit installed Milling panel so switch would fit
  3. Erik, how did you, or anyone else, get the board in the cabin out to get at the anchor locker. I can't seem to get it out, do I just need to pry harder?
  4. Greetings all, I am just getting started in my second season with my 1999 262 and have decided I need a windlass to aid in solo fishing ops. I hit google and saw some discussion but nothing specific about any windlass other than a lewmar 700. What other units have you other 262 owners installed? The shelf seems to have plenty of space form a length and width standpoint, I am concerned about the depth, It is just 6" to the underside on my anchor locker door and that is about the height of most of the available units I am looking at (lewmar 550, Powerwinch 450, marpac) Thanks in advance for your time joe
