Re: What size winches?

SIngle speeds as suggested will work.....For my 28' boat with a 190# main and 345# 155 jib, I do prefer dual speeds in the 15-16 range over a single 14 I have on my cabin. I've gone non tailing......With a clutch in front of the winch frankly not sure one really needs a self tailer for a halyard. Jib sheets, they come in handy, altho racing at times.......I find my human tailing winchs work fine too. Larger is better here!


She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
