If the globe is plastic...then you can often polish the scratches out to the point where it will be useable again, provided the hazing is surface scratches and not deep crazing.

I would recommend opening up each winch and re-greasing them. Use light oil on the Pawls, and grease on the bearings. Cleaning and re-greasing them will keep them working smoothly for quite some time... If they're like my Lewmars, cleaning and re-greasing each one takes about 20 minutes. :) If you don't clean and re-grease them, they make become damaged if there is any grit inside them or seize up if there is any corrosion going on inside them due to a lack of lubrication.... :) Replacing them is far more expensive than maintaining them.
