I just finished the winch maintenance on my boat. Boat is on the hard. Didn't remove the winches from the boat...and all went well.
Didn't replace any parts, as I did not see any signs of significant wear. Pawls, bearings, springs, all looked fine. I do have a good supply of spares for the eventuality.
Cleaned all the old, gummed up grease, oiled the pawls, greased everything else and reinstalled.
Not a bad job...
It's not whether you're paranoid...it's whether you're paranoid enough.
