Re: Winch covers?


My previous boat had Lewmar self tailers. The tailers had a plastic part to prevent the line from going under the self tailing part. The sun degraded that part and it broke. I think a cover would have prevented that. The part was like $5 so it was no big deal to replace.

My current boat has old Barients that are all metal. It came with winch covers that I used for the first year. Now the covers just sit in a lazarette.
