I think it was actually Barlow and Barient who combined and then they both when belly up. Hutton-Arco didn't so much as buy them out as much as buy up the leftovers, they did the same thing with Maxwell.

LWinters Barient winches are great winches, but no longer in business. They were purchased by Lewmar at which time Lewmar incorparated most of the Barient design into their ST winch series. I've got a non-self tailing pair of Barient 26 going up on ebay tomorrow. I loved them, but single handing here so had to move to Lewmars 40ST for my 39 Ketch.

saurav16 Thanks Cam for your response I called the stores but no luck yet. Will keep trying!

camaraderie You might try marine salvage stores like sailorman in fort lauderdale or sailors exchange in st. augustine. Probably need to phone them.

saurav16 Anyone know places besides Ebay to get used winches?

christyleigh Another thing to consider with winching is the Winch Handle. I've been using nothing but the big Harken Ball Bearing handles with the ball bearing door knobs on top for a few years and it's a big difference especially when single handing. Another added expense at around $90 but just reach down, grab that door knob, crank it in, and you'll appreciate the difference

TrueBlue We have 30st Lewmars in anodized aluminum finish and wish they were chrome. I suppose they both perform the same, but those inevitable stains left from winch lube and buffing splatters from fiberglass polishes and compounds, are very tough to get out.

camaraderie Saurav...for 50 bucks, I'd rather have the chrome as they look a whole lot better...but no problem with aluminum.
