I have a 2008 Beneteau Oceanis
40 with a Harken
H40.2 STC manual winch
on the coach roof for the main halyard
etc. The yacht had a factory option that supplied an electric winch
; H40.2 STC EH where the "EH" stands for electric
I have learnt that post 2009, are the new Radial winches, but mine is Pre-2009 which is a Classic winch.
I believe you used to be able to get elctric conversion kits for these winches that supplied the 90 degree gear
box and 12 volt motor
Contacting two dealers who checked with Harken
, I have been told that these parts
are no longer available and I would have to buy a new Radial Electric winch at a large cost.
Has anyone converted the same model winch before and can give any advice, I see a couple of motors on Ebay that may of may not be the correct size? If you search Harken motor
they come up.
Does anyone know anyone who has old stock of these electric conversion kits for Pre-2009 Harken H40.2 STC classis winch?
Just taking a long shot that someone will read this that can help, otherwise I will have to save up for later.
