I am looking at getting the same manual kit here in Australia
which also fits their H3 anchor winch
which I have.
I was stunned when i asked the importer their wholesale price
for boatshed so can get wholsale prices). They want A$450 for it. I really don't know why evewrything is so muvch dearer here ie more than double your price
When I questioned them as to why the winch
does not have the manual option fitted as standard they said they mainly supply to the cheap
production market where the builders want to make boats as cheap
as possible. Hmmmm! Another good reason to avoid modern day production boats.
They also suggested that once fitted with the manual kit you can run the winch on power or manually. The kit comprises of a pawl and ratchet gearing that fits into the cone as well as the lever.
Anyway I am going to keep my old manual winch and have both side by side rather than pay that much money
and have to change the kit each time i need to swap from power to manual.
