Selden has concentrated on a whole new concept of winches. The manually operated reversible winch allows you to ease line by reversing the winch drum. The rope remains in the self tailing jaws the entire time, which means it can be a one hand operation to trim the sheet, halyard or windward guy. Single handed sailors can trim and drive at the same time. It's also a safe operation-no hands are near the drum when easing out the line. The winches provide a faster trim enhancing boat speed.
Selden winches are manually operated and of the self-tailing type that have your standard two forward gears. The purpose made winch handle has a knob which can be pushed down using your thumb. While using the button the winch turns into reverse mode. In reverse mode the winch handle is rotated clockwise and the rope eases out. Other features include:
A stainless drum with 10 flat faces creating a an excellent grip
Low weight with the centre tower is partly composite.
Compatable with other standard winch handles, with the exception of the reverse function that is exclusive to the Selden handle.
10” Seldén winch handle with lock-in switch is included with every winch.
Smooth and well rounded reverse feeder. The sheet can be dumped fast when tacking..
