Constructed in Manganese bronze of a robust design these winches also feature the Murray Top Cleat, mounted on the drum and eliminating the need for a separate cleat on the mast or coaming. Drums on all winches are designed to avoid overriding turns, but use of a fairlead eliminated this possibility entirely. All winches are reversible by simple changing pawl direction, and are sold complete with handle.
A very special winch. Designed originally as halyard winches for a 108′ four-masted training ship. A massive main sheet winch in special applications or the perfect large boat halyard winch.
