PLUS 1 for Andersens! Keep an eye on eBay - sometimes you can get a deal. I got one of mine on eBay, and had to go out and buy the new primaries retail. Check out RIGGING ONLY in Mass. My almost-40 year old winches were not self-tailing, and parts were unavailable - the new Andersens are STs. Awesome design - stainless drums (you never have to worry about chrome wearing thin/out), easy to work on, lightweight - the list goes on.

The BEST purchase I have made for the boat so far!!
