Murray Winches

p_5.gif
Murray bottom handle winches have adorned decks booms and masts on cruising and classical yachts worldwide. Their ruggedness has been proven in the worst sea conditions imaginable. Top cleats allow for self tailing and small trimming. The handles are lockable and both winch and handles are manufactures in Manganese Bronze and built to last. More recent Murray products included traditional designed Bronze Skylight lifters and rigging screws.


There are so many variations in cruising boats that it becomes difficult to make a specific recommendations based soley on boat length. Type of rig, sail area, main sheet purchase, winch position, and strength of the people sailing should all be considered when choosing the 'right' Murry Winch for your boat.

These charts should be used as a guide only. Our offices will be happy to assist you in making your specific winch choices
