Barlow 27's - not gripping line

I have a pair of 2 speed self tailing Barlow winches (27's) on our Ericson 36 Cruising Cutter. The winches seem mechanically fine. However, the drums are quite smooth (the once textured area is worn) and they do not grip the line, even when tensioned. I know it is not the line as I have washed the lines and even tried replacements. Is there an easy fix to re-texture the drums so that they will grip the line without damaging the line? Thanks in advance for any help!

An easy way to re-texture the drums are to either paint them with non-skid... or take them to a machine shop and have the machine shop texture or knurl the surface for you. The non-skid paint is faster, easier and cheaper, but the machine shop work will probably last longer.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Do they slip if you use 3 or 4 wraps of line on the drum ?

They are self tailing...take an extra wrap or two and let the tailer do its' work.
