Re: Winch Free Spins
Sloop .... I must try the lithium grease. If it does work as well as you say then I owe you a beer or ten.
btw ... when I said oil I did mean a light machine oil used very sparingly.
In the past when setting to work on a newly acquired boat I've always found the winches to be over greased with springs and pawls clogged up with the stuff. That is why I tend to accept the conventional wisdom, its always worked for me. I still don't think it is bad advice but I'm more than willing to try something new.
Not my thread but thanks for the advice.
