Re: Which winch?
Why replace? Are they that shot?
I have self tailing lewmars and they work fine. Easy to maintain. I would venture to say that some would say that Harkens are better.
If your mind is set on new winches call around to some big dealers. Some people are buying new boats and having them retrofitted at delivery with electric winches. I saw 2 Lewmar 46's for sale the other day for this very reason. Good price to.
