Need help identifying this winch

Hi everyone,

it's time for crowdsourcing again.

Does anybody know who makes this winch?
Maybe even the model?

My guess would be Anderson or Barent but I am not sure.

When stripping it, I noticed that beside the missing self tailer retainer, for which I made up a solution with washers, it's missing some pawls and springs.

Also the lower pawl seems to be defect.

Attached some pictures.

The base is about 117mm wide, height is about 150mm.

Thanks so much. I need those pawls & springs, can not afford a new winch right now.

The winch is used to haul the centerboard down.

Greetings from Saint Vaast la Hougue,

Re: Need help identifying this winch

hmm ... all the Andersen winches (made in Denmark) I've seen have about 8 vertical ridges around the drum, supposedly to grip the line better.

Re: Need help identifying this winch

Good comment. Thanks. So I guess Anderson is out.

Unfortunately there are no markings or serial numbers.

I think the winch must be about 20years old.

Re: Need help identifying this winch

I think all the Barient winches had a retaining nut that held the rope arm/rope guide arm/Führungsarm in place. And I think that nut always carried the Barient name.

I'm not clear what is holding the rope arm in place on your winch - what are those 4 hexagonal heads above the grey rope arm? what function do they have?


I suspect not a Barient or Barlow winch.

Re: Need help identifying this winch

I've seen some (not all) self-tailing Lewmar winches with 4 bolts at the top that hold the upper and lower self-tailing jaws/crown/oberkrone und unterkrone together. The Lewmar winches on which I have worked didn't have hexagonal heads for those bolts, instead Allen keys were need.

Lewmar has been fairly consistent in having its name on the self-tailing jaws. But it could be an older type I've never seen.

Re: Need help identifying this winch

Lewmar would really surprise me, I have never seen a Lewmar winch without markings or logo.

The 4 Hexbolts with cut off washers are my solution to the missing semicircular retainer rings.
Normally there are two of these half rings slid into a groove at the crown.
Than a retaining cap is secured with 4 countersunk screws.

My halyard winches are complete regarding this.

Photo to follow in a moment.

Thanks again.

I see!


I agree - I've never seen a Lewmar that doesn't have its name somewhere.


Thanks for your photo of the halyard winch. It's not familiar to me.


In which economy was your boat built?

Re: Need help identifying this winch

She was built in Finland around 1995.
Semi professional I guess.

Re: Need help identifying this winch

it looks a bit like a Lewmar, but the grippers in the self tailer don't like right. Anyone could have changed the bolts. Not sure the Lewmars I've had had an aluminum tailer on a chrome winch drum though either...

Thanks.

Definitely not Lewmar. They have always their logo on their winches.

I put the 4bolts, as there are parts missing.

Re: Need help identifying this winch

It's not Andersen, Harken, Barient or Lewmar. I wish I could add something positive.

Btw, the tailer is black fiber reinforced plastic.

Re: Need help identifying this winch

Years ago the American company Barient was bought by someone in Australia. This Australian company had some problems (nothing to do with Barient winches) but in their need to save the company Barent winches went the way. They do however make the brand Arco winches and it's very close to the lost Barient. I have Barient winches on my boat and they look a lot like what you have, perhaps yours is an Arco made in Australia
