PostSubject: Cockpit winches   Sun May 05, 2013 11:32 am

My friend's CM26 circa 1974-ish, has two winches. They bear the name Main Marine (England). I can't seem to find any listing for that company. Are parts available for these units or do we become creative? Specifically, broken springs on the pawls. That's all I see wrong. I've known this boat since he's had it and the winches have never been opened. I was very(pleasantly) surprised when I was able to simply disassemble them. Any thoughts on the matter will be greatly appreciated.

Crisis averted. All I had to do was clean everything, and replace broken springs. 1/4"x1''x .035, which I found at OSH. I had to cut them in half and they worked fine. Back on the boat.
