Re: Helms 25 winches

Hi Wayne,
That info is very helpful. I'll look to Napa and the Bacon Sails store near it to see what they can come up with. The idea is to take the mast down and get all the work done once. I have a couple yacht club members who will help and show me how it is done. I was able to pick up a couple Barient 10 winches to replace the old/failed jib sail winches from Bacon Sails. They were very good at sizing them for me. Just waiting for a good day with no commitments so I can install them.

Thanks very much!

p.s. It took me awhile to find info on how to determine my boat number, then I realized we were very close.
