Dirty job

Andersen 46 two speed

Winch maintenance is done! I had plans for today that didn’t materialize. Instead I noticed that the tank was half full again. So I topped it up, and with a bit of diesel left in the pour over filter, I decided to finish the winch maintenance.

There were three left to do: the mainsheet and the two primaries. I did the halyard winches a while ago. Both primaries had a plastic bushing that was broken. Luckily the service kit included these pieces. I also replaced all pawl springs. And of course cleaned everything in the bit of diesel, which leaves me with wonderfully smelling hands!

That job is off the list, yippee!
