See specific model for fastener size and mounting footprint. Lewmar recommends that the rope enters onto the drum at an angle of 5-10° to the base axis of the winch. To achieve this angle it may be necessary to use a base wedge when installing the winch.
No tools are required to service a Lewmar winch. Simply unscrew the top cap with your fingers to remove the needle peen drum and provide access to the centre stem. Lewmar winches are also easy to fit. Simply remove the needle peen drum for access to the deck fitting holes.
Whatever sailing you do, short handed or long distance cruising, the decision to install electric winches, or upgrade your existing winches with one of our conversion kits is simple.
Lewmars EVO winches are specifically engineered to offer sail trimming at the push of a button for more relaxed and comfortable sailing.
Multiple styles and finishes
EVO winches are available in black or grey alloy and chrome bronze for the cruising sailor. The range is available with single speed or two speed, manual winches and electric electric winches are available from size 40 through to 65.
Wave Spring jaw and stripper ring
The integrated investment cast stainless steel feeder arm completely covers the winch, and does not create a rope trap above our WaveSpring jaws.
Directional arrows allow fool proof loading of the winch, a very helpful feature if you are sailing with an inexperienced crew.
The stripper position can be adjusted to smoothly feed the rope out of the jaws and into the cockpit, while the proven stripper ring goes round the WaveSpring. Lewmars unique design ensures you cannot snag that loose rope cover, no matter how long you have been using your sheets.
