Under construction for over 30 years, the Club winch had become famous for being nearly ready.
It under-went many design changes, over the years. At one time the main engine was based on a washing machine motor, but Members were concerned in case it should enter a fast spin cycle at the wrong moment - so it had to be replaced!!
Despite years of cynical abuse, Alan Taylor (the current Club President, who has built the winch single-handed), finally completed it in early November 1995.
