Re: Worn holes for the Winch Pawls
I'm trying to picture what you are describing. It seems the spring would hold the pawl in, even if the pivot hole has worn.
Can you just replace the worn part, rather than the entire winch? Pawls are a very serious safety issue. If you have a handle in a loaded winch that fails, it will break your hand, wrist, arm, etc.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
