The solenoid will come as pat of the package with a new windless set up. All that the boat company did as to run a few wires. For the power leads going to the front, I would look at the fuse box under the helm. There could be where they wanted to draw power from, you would see another set of larger wires on the positive and negative posts there. Since it is not really hard to run large cables in a boat side, if needed you could always just run a set from the battery to the locker here the windless is.

I do have power to rocker switch which controls the up and down of the windlass. i was hoping some one could tell me where the cables from the rope locker go as they do not go back to the batteries in the back. There was an expert who had a regal 2465 but I lost my connection and didn't get a chance to ask him any questions
