Re: Helms 25 winches

On the subject of winches, one of my two winches for the jib sail froze solid and will not turn at all. These winches appear to be no-name winches with no markings whatsoever on them. Maybe they are original to the boat. I am unable to loosen the set screw so I cannot disassemble it to see if it can be repaired. So, I am thinking of replacing them. What is the smallest size I can get away with (due to larger winches cost more) as replacements?

As a side question: what is the bulb number for the steaming light on the Helms 25? I would like to have a spare on hand should the currrent light fail.

Thanks very much!
