Furling system works
Every season, as boats make their way out of the winter storage conditions to live in the water, they go through a checklist that often neglects winching systems.
The typical list usually includes looking over engine rooms for leaks or corrosion; checking generators and refrigerators; testing bilges for proper levels and adding antifouling paint or barnacles to hulls and keels.
The one neglected system is usually the winches, which help control position on boat’s tether in portages.
Dirty poly cables can wrap themselves around parts of a winch mechanism, making things difficult when it comes time to haul up lines upon departure. It also creates an increased risk from broken wires with frayed insulation.
When you’re gearing up for an offshore sailing trip, it’s imperative to ensure your winches are in tip-top shape.
In our shipyard in Barcelona (Arenys de Mar) we have the knowledge and vision to take care of all aspects of an overhaul. In addition to performing routine maintenance services like cleaning, inspecting, and replacing worn parts in every type of winch, we also offer replacement spools.
