I used Winchspares (you can find them in the net) recently for a base (very hard to find part) for the Lewmar st and an upper crown. Service was very good and prices reasonable too.
If anyone has the ST56 like I do in my Jeanneau Sun Magic 44 I would recomend you check the base because corrosion takes place because of dissimilar metals (alu and bronz or alu and stainles steel. This could cause the winch to brake under load
Good luck : )
