Barlow 18 winch for Leisure 27

Post by » 05 Sep 2020, 20:18


I have to replace one of my winches, a Barlow 18 from about 1979, since it cracked during sailing today.
Does anybody have one?
What's the best replacement?

All the best,

Philip, Sweden

it was quite some time ago but they might still be there.

I am not sure if I still have one I replaced. When I go to the club next I will check. I replaced both my 23-26 main wu=inches andalso. If I do have it you are welcome to have it plus postage.
Get back to you as soon as pos.
