1979 spirit 23 new owner

how ya all are ?
i just purchased my spirit from paul in MS.
the four hour tow home went fine until i tried to back into my drive way not quite wide enough to back in ,we have ditches in front of our houses here .

so we are having culverts installed to fix that problem .

a few questions to start
swing keel winch mine has like 1/4 inch line on it ,not cable anyone else have there's rigged like this ?

the winch looks like it is ready to collapase from all the rust anyone know a good model for replacement .

this is a pop top model ,the former owner told me you need to lay the mast over towards the bow ,which we did without much trouble .
but looking at it ,it seems like it should be able to laydown toward the stern also which would let me do the board and winch trick . i have seen on youtube.
