Lewmar winches must be serviced regularly, as they are required to carry deceptively high loads. Regular servicing, with attention to correct assembly and condition of parts, is vital to the safety and performance of your boat.
You should service your winches two or three times during an active sailing season: each winch should be stripped, cleaned and re-lubricated. At the end of each sailing season and before starting the new sailing season, all Lewmar winches should be completely stripped, cleaned, thoroughly checked for damage and lubricated. Consult the Winch Service Manual that came with your Lewmar winch for the proper maintenance schedule for your particular winch.
The Full Maintenance Package contains 10 Pawl Springs, Race Lube, Grease, a brush, and Instructions.
