Barton #3 Large Wincher fits a winch drum between 3" and 3 1/2" (80-90mm) in diameter. Recommended rope diameters between 1/2" and 9/16" (12-14mm).
Selfsheeting and selflocking with a single hand movement. The Wincher is made of a specially designed rubber body which fits down on top of the winch.
As the sheet is being winched home and is put under increasing load, the coils "climb" up the winch drum and fasten against the ribs in the underside of the rubber body. When the sail is trimmed, the sheet can be locked in the special ribbed groove - no other securing is required! Hauling and securing can be done using only one hand.
The Wincher has been put through the most rugged tests. For mounting, immerse the Wincher in hot soapy water and stretch onto the top of the winch with both hands.

- Lewmar 40 and 44
- Antal W42
