Re: Winch covers?

As a newbie I'm using them. ?? I'm assuming they will help the winches look new longer. My boat was new when purchased but nearly a year old since built. I had already noticed some corrosion etching on the drums of my Harkens. I'm using Blue Performance Covers (Defender) which were slightly less expensive or about the same as having them made with Sunbrella. The fit is fairly snug and on my primaries you just need to make sure you align the seam with the Genoa Sheets to get good fit. They have these plastic retainers inside that snap on to the top of the drum. You have to give a pretty good tug to get them off.

Plus if you're stuck for a costume party or Carnival parade idea, they make a decent fez ;-)

Halloween is coming. You've given me an idea. The largest winch cover might fit by big head. ;-)
