Self-tailing winches are ideal for sheets, halyards, and control lines
on racing and cruising boats. The self-tailing mechanism means that
one crew member can quickly and easily trim or raise sails.
The B16ST is a one-speed winch. The handle drives in one direction
and ratchets in the other to facilitate cranking under high loads. Two-speed winches enable
quick grinding in first gear out of a tack or jibe. When the sheet
loads up, the reverse direction gives more power in second gear.
All have Harken's "super holding" jaws and one-piece sculpted line
guide and peeler.
Halyards, sheets and control lines.
