Re: Floating Winch Handle
We have the harken. After 6 years we have the harken.
Prefer synthetics for a winch handle because they are lighter. Prefer the harken because you can do everything with one hand which is the most important thing after knowing it wonít break when loaded.
Like the winch and pocket rule but go one further. No handle is ever left in a winch. You are either actively using it or itís removed and placed back where it belongs. Think if you place your handle pockets correctly and the handles are put back when not in active use then thereís one always right at hand. Also think falling on the hand grip of a handle can do you some serious damage.
