Andersen's Black Trim Self-Tailing Winches feature Andersen's Power Rib drum for maximum power and extended line life. The vertical rib on the drum firmly grip the line, requiring fewer turns to achieve the same holding grip as conventional winches. The self-tailing mechanism automatically accommodates a wide range of sheet and halyard sizes, making these winches useful in trimming sheets, hoisting halyards, and making other adjustments.
