Can somebody please inform me what the original winches were on the sailboat and what they could be replaced with (mount wise).

regards

hello Kimbo

welcome to the kittiwake family... I am almost finished rebuilding mine... I splash her tomorrow at the lake.... I have an original set of winches for the kittiwake, I am not using them... I replaced my winches with lewmar No#6.... I have 4 winches on my boat.... 2 on the cockpit sides and 2 on top of the cabin top.... the original winches are bronze style with the handle that inserts into them on the side and locks in... I have the 2 winches and the handle in my garage on my work bench... I did not care for the locking handle... I prefer the lewmar winches....

your boat look wonderful.... hull #205.... not far from mine... I have hull #214.... do you have the eagle for the transom ?.... most people lost them over time.... I have the eagle and I painted it gold... looks great against the white transom...

again, welcome to the kittiwake family...

sincerely
Jess
