Harken 1 Speed Self-Tailing Aluminum winches are designed for sailors who want lightweight, extremely strong winches with plenty of power. These Classic Harken winches compliment the look of their Radial line in smaller sizes with a sandblasted grip. This winch features 17-4PH stainless steel gears for strength and durability.
Self-tailing winches are ideal for sheets, halyards, and control lines on racing and cruising boats. The self-tailing mechanism means that one crew member can quickly and easily trim or raise sails. On a 1 speed winch the handle drives in one direction and ratchets in the other to facilitate cranking under high loads.
