If you need a basic manual winch for a smaller boat, and desire the quality and striking good looks of a stainless steel winch, these Andersen standard winches are the right choice.
Andersen winches feature a non-abrasive Power Rib™ drum surface that generates horizontal friction and provides extra grip - without damaging the line.
The vertical Power Rib design actually holds line better than rough-surface drums, letting the user apply less force with fewer wraps to achieve comparable winch force.
• Smooth drum surface extends sheet and halyard life
• Minimal risk of overrides, as the Power rib design allows line to slide easily up the drum
• Lightweight stainless drums weigh the same, or less, than aluminum drum winches of similar size
• Smooth corrosion resistant drum surface will not rust
• Strong and corrosion-resistant aluminum bronze internal construction - twice as strong as standard bronze
• Pawls are made from unbreakable cold pressed 316 stainless steel bar
