Winches; what's the deal with these?
(I'm saying this in my best Seinfeld voice)
I need a little assistance understanding winch sizes and what they mean and why is it so important. I have done some research, but I have not seen any info on what the "#" represents.
I have two winches, one is good and one needs to be replaced soon. The good one is a Lewmar and is marked with a #10. The other winch is not marked with a #, but it looks to be the same size.
I understand the reasons for larger or smaller winches, but is the # relative to the size of the winch or does it indicate something else entirely?
I have a Catalina 27 for reference.
