I have a 1964 boat I am under purchase contract for and would like to find out as much as I can about the winches which look original.

They have what looks like a 3/4"-1" square end sticking out of the winch that fits a square hole in the winch handle.

No other markings are on the winch.

The square is offset from the winch center near the edge.

Raced on a Morgan 42 in late 60''s that had similar winches. The winch handle had a ratcheting device that fit over the square post. They were not easy to use compared to more modern styles.

I found out. They are South Coast winches. Now if I could only find data / specifications on the different SCmodels on the internet somewhere!
