How to choose this product

sailboat-winch

A winch is a fitting which uses internal gearing to increase mechanical advantage.

Applications

These devices have become nearly indispensable on cruising and racing sailboats. In contrast, they are rarely found on sailing dinghies and similar small craft.

Technologies

Usually made of aluminum, winches have an internal gear mechanism to increase the tensioning force that can be applied to a line. The largest models have as many as four speeds, or gear ratios. The line, usually a sheet or a halyard, is wound around an exterior drum.

The winch can be operated via a single handle or take the form of a coffee-grinder, a twin-handled pedestal winch operated simultaneously by one or two crew. There are also electric and hydraulic models. A self-tailing winch has a cleat, in the form of a set of circular jaws, often plastic, built into the upper part of the drum to keep tension on the free end of the line.

How to choose

Choice will depend on the winch's maximum load capacity and available installation space on deck. Self-tailing winches are highly recommended for single- or shorthanded sailing. An electric winch consumes a great deal of power, requiring significant battery-charging capacity. Only the largest vessels with ample space and power source can be fitted with the pump and lines necessary for hydraulic winches.
