We have almost purchased my wife''s dream-boat and if the survey proves good we will have the almost immediate problem of changing at least the primary winches for self-tailing ones. The present winches are Barlow 32''s which if we were to replace with new say the equivalent Lewmar''s they would cost in the region of $5,000 each. I know of a place in St. Thomas, USVI, where reconditioned winches of all sizes were available but the boat in question is on the west coast of Florida, the Tampa Bay area, is there somewhere similar in this region?
Any thoughts or information would be most welcome.
