best old self tailing winch
I notice that smaller winches are quite expensive, and so when a winch on an old sailboat goes bad and no spare parts are to be found, its often necessary to find a used one.
For example, a Lewmar No. 16 is $400 to $600 and the Harken is even more expensive.
Seems to me there could be an older winch design which is no longer in production but is worthy of new production. So, what is the best one to look at copying?
