replacing swing keel winch

one side of my winch the flange was completely missing . went to several places trying to find a winch not made in china . no such luck did find a attwood 1200 lb trailer winch with a nylon strap at chinamart .

take out two bolts and the nylon strap slips right off the flange on the drum . everything looks like it will line up fine just have to drill one new mounting hole.

I replaced mine with a braking winch from Northern Tool, it will hold a position when released and I think it might be easier on the swing keel if you happen to let go of it

Re: replacing swing keel winch

when i got my boat the swing keel had a piece of line on the winch to pull the keel up . i plan on replacing it with stainless steel wire .
how are you all attaching it to the swing keel have not gotten a look at the swing keel from the bottom yet

Re: replacing swing keel winch

Hello

I made a drawing of our keel. The measurements are in millimeters. I also have an old photo of the pickup mechanism. Good luck.
Regards, Jan Rook.
