Re: Lewmar 25 Winch Pawls
Have you checked yours against current Lewmar pawls? I replaced pawls in my Barients with Lewmar. They were a very close fit, I just needed to replace all of them with new because the slight differences would have had the winches resting on one pawl instead of both.
I suppose I could have filed down the tips of the ones that were a hair longer but why bother? Just change them all. The round "pivot" part where the spring sits was an exact fit in the Barients so I'd be surprised if they didn't fit your winches.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
