Dear fellow cruisers.
I would like to buy a few chrome Lewmar
Wavegrip- winches. As most of you know, these are Lewmar’s early self- tailing winches with fixed jaws. They were in production during the eighties and early nineties, and they are easily recognizible by the four bolts holding the black top cap.
Sure, I know both the ocean and the evo models with spring loaded jaws are a significant upgrade, as they can accomodate modern slim trimlines. However, due to aesthetical reasons, I want my ”new” units to blend in perfectly with my existing 30 year old wavegrips, so these are the only winches I want on board.
I need one small unit (approximately size 16-30) and a pair of mid sized winches (46, 48, 52, preferably 52..)
A little patina is totally okay, and I don’t mind doing some serious cleaning
and greasing, but I don’t want to buy worn out units with broken teeth or missing parts
I’m located in Oslo, Norway
. Anything available locally? If not, I’d appreciate if you are willing to ship abroad.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
