A real monster of a machine,
the sturdy winch is the heaviest winch available at By Sail and Wain, or at
any other shipyard in the world, for that matter. Constructed almost entirely
of steel, a sturdy winch is a huge machine capable of lifting as much as six
tonnes from the water. A sturdy winch must be mounted to the deck of a ship
in order to function, and the deck and structure of the ship itself must be
reinforced in order to accommodate the tremendous strain this winch can create.
A sturdy winch is intended to be used by a team of five crewmen, who must collectively
succeed on a Strength ability check (DC 15), to lift six tonnes of weight using
the winch. A ship must be at least 70 feet in length to remain stabilised when
the sturdy winch is lifting such a weight from the water. A diving bell requires
the use of a sturdy winch. The price of the sturdy winch includes the cost of
reinforcing the hull and deck of the ship.
