Question Winches

Hello everyone I have 2 Andersen 40 Two speed winches they are not self tailing, can anyone advise if I can buy the self tailing separately they would just fit into the winch handle and do the job of a self tailer. Andersen says I have to but new winches but mine are stiil in pristine condition. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Phil

Re: Winches

You generally can't convert non-ST To ST winches. There are two many differences in the internal parts for it to work. Sadly this is why I hate new boat builders that even make nons an option on new boats. It's a rediculous way to save a few undated bucks.

Re: Winches

You should just sell your winches and put the money towards the STs. It will cost b bit more, but you will be glad you did! I just put Andersen 40 STs on my boat and I love them!

Looking for coffee grinder in the size 65-75 or slightly larger,

Re: Winches

I have a pair of Barient 22 stainless two speed winches on my 1973 C&C 30. They work well except the needle-peened finish is worn smooth and itís sometimes hard to keep the sheet from slipping when trimming the jib sheet.

Do you have any ideas on how to refinish the drums? Or where I might send them to have this done?

It has been suggested that a machine shop can knurl the drums, but Iím worried about creating too much friction or damaging the inside bearing surface.

If your drums are indeed stainless, you can have them masked-off, and the appropriate area sand blasted with a very course media. Any reputable sand blaster should be able to show you samples of the different finishes they can obtain. Good luck!
