Re: Which winch?

winches from '86 should not be worn out. they probably just need lube. sounds like he was looking to make a sale. service them first and then sail the boat before you decide they need to be replaced. the sound most winches make when you are sitting on a boat in a quite marina always make them seem like they are worn out.
