Electric Radial Winches let you relax in luxury and trim
any size sail with the push of a button. Winches come with lightweight
aluminum or mirror-finished chrome drums with black skirts. The Radial
White combines chrome drums with white composite tops, self-tailing jaws
and skirts for a stunning contemporary look. High strength composite
roller bearings reduce friction under loads and don't require lubrication.
Load-carrying gears and pins are 17-4PH stainless steel for strength
Manual Radials easily convert to electric power. They don't need an
adapter plate, and the identical stud pattern means no filling old holes
and drilling new ones. Boatbuilders can make upgrades even easier by
precutting and sealing a 3 5/32 in (8.0 cm) drive shaft hole into the
boat. Electric motors are available for vertical or horizontal installation
and operate using water-proof switches located near the winch. A locking
handle inserted into an unloaded winch automatically disconnects the
motor gear for manual operation.
The Harken UniPower Winch is a single-speed winch that
combines the advantages of a low-profile manual winch with the power
of a 12- or 24-volt, low-amp-draw motor. What makes it unique is
motor is partially imbedded inside the drum, so that it extends only
4 1/8 inches (105 mm) below the winch base—a critical feature
for small boats where space under the cabin top is limited.
Whether you solo or are passaging with friends, the Harken
Rewind Radial Electric Winch will make your cruise relaxing and fun, allowing
both you and your guests to take pleasure in the sea’s beauty instead
of hauling line and cranking winches. Like all electric Radials, the
like a normal Harken
two-speed electric winch. A simple flip of the red knob on the winch
base turns on the rewind feature. A spring-loaded arm of investment-cast
steel funnels and keeps line captive as it feeds in and out of the self-tailer
while you adjust the sail under fingertip control.
