Lewmar GearGrease 100g used for regular winch servicing. Winches should be stripped, cleaned and re-lubricated two to three times during an active sailing season.
Use only a light smear of winch grease when lubricating ratchet tracks, gear teeth and bearings. Otherwise, excess grease will be forced out and collect in potentially dangerous areas such as pawl pockets.
Never use grease to lubricate pawls, as this can lead to pawls sticking in their pockets and disabling the winch. Use Lewmar RaceLube 19701600 for pawl lubrication.
