Re: Self Tailing Winches

I would agree that 30s are way too small for a 32 foot boat. I have Lewmar 42s on my 30 footer and they are too small. The 30s on the cabin top a barely big enough. However it should not be based strictly on the boat lenght, if you go to the Lewmar site of who ever they list winches based on sail size since obviously racing boats carry bigger sails relative to their length.
