Re: Need help identifying this winch

Send the photos to Allen at HUTTON-ARCO Yacht Winches.

There is nothing this guy doesn't know about winches!

Good luck

Hi Franziska


I'm sorry I'm unaware of this brand of winches, it's something I just haven't seen before.


Regards Allen Hutton.

Re: Need help identifying this winch

Wow, I sent him photos of mine and he came back with all the schematics and service advice.

I guess you possibly have something peculiar to Europe.

Good luck with the search.

Hello Franziska, sorry but photos are not available since I won't be back to the boat in Malaysia until next winter.
It's been several years since I overhauled my winch but I recall there were two pawls so I had at least one to compare with the Barient original. If you have a knock-off then hope they copied the original faithfully since they were not too concerned with patent infringements. The pawls were made of steel and the housing in which they were located was bronze. This is were most of the wear can take place. A machinist friend of mine in Malaysia was able to braise the worn location and remachine it to the original specifications.if you also have this wear problem ,don't despair, it can be fixed. Good luck.
