DONE DEAL'S EQUIPMENT
Done Deal is a 1998 Catalina 380 Sailed on SF Bay
HARKEN 53 - 2 Speed Electric Winches
Power winches mounted at the primary positions port and starboard (also shown from below). We made covers which are held in place by 4 screws. There are high and low speed buttons mounted next to the winches. The two speed feature offered by Harken is worth the extra money. We use the starboard cabin top winch as a block to direct the halyard to the port winch. It works great.
Last year we installed the port winch; the first time we tacked using this winch I decided that I wanted one on the other side. It's not just lazy, it's speed. The high speed has the jib trimmed faster than I can fumble a winch handle into the hole.
