Re: Lewmar winch problem

Problem solved. Using a large vice and a ruler, I squeezed the locking arm in 3 mm. We tested it under load in a force 6 and it behaved perfectly, unlike a female crewmember, who overtly showed signs of jealosy with the introduction of a slimmer, fitter, prettier, younger, faster, nimbler, stronger and more competent blond! Perhaps 3 latin women is 1 too many...
