Can you order a back curtain with the clear plastic to enclose the hardtop area of a 23 Conquest stock from Whaler, or does it have to be after market custom.

Also, I notice the Windlass was an option that I don't have and would like. Is this a big deal to install?

You can get the canvas from either Whaler or Mills Canvas. I have a full enclosure and it is very nice in the wintertime.

The biggest challenge to installing the windlass is running heavy duty cable from the battery up to the anchor locker. The backing board should already be up in the foredeck. Instead of a windlass, I bought an anchor retrieval bouy with slider ring and use that regularly in water 100-200 feet deep. Works fine and saves my wife's back. BillS

I just installed a simpson lowrance horizon 600 free fall on my 21 conquest.It was pretty easy to do. They give you a template for the holes. You run the wire from the windlass thru the anchor locker into the cabin(pull out the long foam peice and run wires behind it, wire that to relay box and then to circuit breaker and battery. I mounted relay box in back of the guage pannel. I mounted the circuit breaker in the bildge near the battery switch.
The rocker switch went right in the switch pannel(remove on of the spare switches).
The only thing i would have done diferent is move the windlass as far aft as posible so the rope goes into the locker better (whaler recomends removing the cleat on the pulpit and measuring up 4.75 inches and use the template to drill holes)
