Thanks for the info. I figured I couldn't use smaller winches but I wanted to make sure with another opinion. I am familiar with Bacon Sails. I love going in there when I get the chance. I already pulled the pair of winches off the boat and plan to clean and rebed the good winch. They are not self-tailing but have the rubber attachment on the drum top. I figure I can do the same if needed. The good winch is in my trunk so I'll swing by Bacon Sails on my way home.
