Very cool with the drill. I helped to deliver a 63 foot sailing cat from St. Thomas to New York City . The boat had a generator. I was woken up on the day of departure to the sound of the generator running ant this big Milwaukee right angle drill with an attachment that fit a winch on it . The captain was raising the main sail with it. Worked great.
We mounted cleats on the forward face of the aft cabin bulkhead and used lines to tie the tiller as needed. For long passages we added shock cord in place of the lines to dampen the wind vane when it was fitted.
