Barient 28 base diameter

As some of you know I recently bought an old Swan 37. I was looking into replacing the old jib sheet winches with self tailing winches. Unfortunately the boat is still 400 miles away and last time I looked at it I didn't have calipers so I couldn't get a good measurement of the previous winches. The design is such that the winch fits into a cutout on the outside of the cockpit coaming so the base diameter is important. The winches are labeled "Barient stainless 28". They arenít made anymore but fit almost perfectly into the cutouts. What I would like to find out is if anyone knows the base diameter of these winches so I can find something close. Thanks in advance.

Look down the list for the Barient 28... looks like an 8" base. I found lots of exploded drawings and info, but no real dimensional drawings. Good luck.

Thanks. It looks like 8" base is for the self tailing version. I would guess it's the same for the non-self tailing but I hate to order the wrong thing and go through a big hassle of returning them. When I tried to measure it with a tape measure it looked about 8" but I couldn't get right down on the base so this measurement is just approximate. It might have been only 7 ĺ" or something, which could be a big deal since I'm considering ordering Andersen 52 ST FS winches which are 7 7/8". I was thinking the non-self tailing might be older and therefore have a slightly different size. Maybe I'll just have to get some calipers and go down there again

Yes, you don't want to make a mistake at those prices, but I'm betting the B28 base is the same, ST or not. It's the topworks that are modified for the self tailing option.

You may also have an issue with the bolt patterns for the different brands.

Probably, but at least that's solvable. I can fill the holes and re-drill. If the winch base is too big I'm SOL.

I have no experience using these guys, but they provide conversion Kits for Bariet 27 to 35 Barient and Balow.

Self-Tailing Winch Conversion fits Barient, Barlow, Cathay, Universal and others: Winchmate

You can also get spare parts for your Barient/Barlows here - pretty good service HUTTON-ARCO Yacht Winches

enjoy......
