Renovating the big winch

Anne Marie has three winches in the cockpit and another five or so on the two masts.  The largest is the Lewmar 44ST (self-tailing) which sits along the centreline at the stern.  I am not quite sure what it is there for but anyway it is the first one I set about servicing.

As there was no guidance available on You-Tube or anywhere else I made a video while I did it for a bit of fun.  I had to set up the SavingAnneMarie You-Tube channel to do this but this is the link.  PS I hope you have 12 minutes of life to spare.

Servicing Anne Marie’s main winch.

I am a well traveled, globe-trotting vessel with great lines. I am told I give a comfortable ride for my years. Although a little worn out I am looking forward to getting back onto the water after a full service.
