An updated list of approved winches is attached. The goal is to keep the power ratio's and weight as close as possible to the original Barient winches. Both Lewmar and Harken have changed some of their model numbers but haven't made significant changes in the winches.
Alloy, chrome, and stainless are permitted.
There was a company in Australia making parts for the Barients. Will try to find a link and post it.
Martec Mark III folding prop Martec has discontinued manufacture of the prop since April1, 2017. I contacted Gary Beck, owner, today to order a new prop. He will build me one with new and used parts but will soon not even have that option.
He also told me that most of the folding props now use a 1" shaft which my boat has but do not make props for 3/4" shafts.
We need to find a new prop for both 3/4" and 1" shafts!
