I have two self tailing Barient 22-39 winches
on my P30. I clean and lube them at least twice per year. One of them started acting up this summer. The best way to explain it is the winch
is very difficult, sometimes impossible, to turn in the high speed low power direction when any load is put on it and in the low speed high power direction I can feel each meshing of a gear tooth. When I break it down to inspect it it appears that the pawls have improperly engaged a few times and material is removed.
Anyway, I am looking for a used winch
for parts or to replace it. I know of the Australian Yacht Winch
Company but would like find a used winch if possible.
Thanks in advance for the help.
