Sheet Winches 1968 31' Seafarer 31

My son recently bought one of these and is fixing it up in preparation for launching it.

He would like information about the bronze sheet winches so that he knows what to do to service them. I saw a photo for a listing of a 1968 31' Seafarer 31 and could tell that the winches on that boat were the same. So I am assuming that this was the winch installed by Seafarer when it manufactured these vessels.

I would very much appreciate hearing from someone who can help me with information about the winches. They are presently operating, but he wants to be able to keep them operating.

Thanks in advance.

I have a Seafarer 31 also. The bronze winches are made by Merriman. There are a couple of different types. One has a large slotted screw on top that can be removed for servicing. Mine does not. I believe I need to remove the winches completely to service them. On my future todo list for sure.

Re: Sheet Winches 1968 31' Seafarer 31

Thanks. The winches I'm asking about have 2 large slotted screws that I think must be removed to service. There is also a small slotted screw that appears to be for an oil hole. The hole is about right for the tip of the tube on a can of 3 in 1 oil.

Doe that sound like a winch you are familiar with?

Re: Sheet Winches 1968 31' Seafarer 31

I took a close look at the sheet winches. They are South Coast 5. I missed there before. South Coast hard to see but it is etched into top of the winches. So i need to find someone familiar with them.

Danjcon, thanks for Merriman link. I'll take a look, maybe something will help me.

If anyone has or has had South Coast winches, please let me know.
