New, Used or Rebuilt Winches

Does anyone have any info on the best place to buy winches. I need a pair of Lewmars in the mid 40 range for secondarys on my 15.5 Idylles. They are so Damn expensive. I'm fine with used, I'll rebuild them. Any info would be helpfull. I just can't bring myself to spend 4 grand on a set of secondarys. Thanks for the info

Winches

I think Lewmar just revamped their line of winches, and some very good deals can be found. You could probably contact a factory Rep, and get good prices. A buyers market, there are very few builders doingnew boats right now.

Winches regularly pop up on ebay. I got a pair of secondaries in excellent condition for about half the cost of new.

I I look on e-bay constantly, but anything decent, self tailing is that Arco Lewmar rip off crap. They want top dollar too. Thanks though. Where did all the crap go from the boats wasted in Hurricane Katrina. There has to be a huge wharehouse of boat parts somewhere.

Don't give up on Ebay- I got nearly new Lewmar 54's for about half price (still plenty though!). You have to know what you want and what their worth and get them without bidding as a buy-it-now. I watched for months before finding them.

check out Antal. But pay attention to the grind ratios.
