Help! Replacement for Old Winch Handle

Hope someone can help me find a replacement winch handle for the attached photo. There is no brand name on the winch.

I have also attached a photo of an other similar winch handle, but the actual attachment is the wrong way around (for some odd reason).

I borrowed the boat from a friend, so the situation is desperate for finding a replacement

Kind regards,

Andreas

Where are you? If in the USA try Bacon and Assoc in Annapolis MD They have lots of old stuff.

Bacon Sails & Marine Supplies

Good luck!

Re: Help! Replacement for Old Winch Handle

Thank you all for taking your time to help me out! I had a response from a yachtsman in Norway (where I am situated) that its an Andersen Winch. Hoping to find a replacement here locally.

If anyone knows where I can find a used one, please let me know. No luck with ebay, and the other options you have listed.
