I have always been more than a bit intimidated
with the thought of cleaning a boat winch.
Warnings came from various forums on the topic…
“make sure you disassemble within a box to sequester all the little parts!”
The recommendations say to service once per season at least
and we are heading into our third season.
The winches on our boat are really basic,
two Forespar Marelon #6.
not too many removeable parts – thankfully…
And I can proudly and confidently say that on our boat at least,
jokers valves and winches
are checked off my ‘I can easily do this myself’ list.
