Re: Old winch handle replacement
As I feared (post 28), the lock on one of the handles betrayed me. I watched in horror as the handle fell out of the winch, hit the deck, and did a back flip into the bay! Unless the lock mechanism is improved I would not recommend ordering (or making) it. It makes the handle difficult to remove from the winch (which is why I thought: "It won't fall out if I can't get it out". WRONG! ) and provides a false sense of security.
Still love the (remaining) handle, but the lock is useless.
