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.
Winches are two-speed self-tailing winches. 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.
Winches up to the 53 have composite fiber-filled
self-tailing jaws that have a gentle angle and tooth design for easy
entry and "super holding" with or without load. Larger winches
have aluminum jaws. Four springs ensure that jaws open evenly
so line is easy to insert.
