Upgrading older Lewmar winches

Hi All,

Andy Shell at 59-north recently put me onto a guy that does winch crown conversion kits for certain sizes of the older Lewmar wave grip winches.

The new customised sprung ocean crowns replace the old ones. They self-tail a lot more efficiently, and there are no more corrosion issues in the future.

He also does re-engineered wave crowns, spare parts etc etc.


See photos below.


I said I’d post his details here should anyone be interested. He’s based on the south coast of the UK, super helpful and knowledgable.
