Alternative Sail Winches

Post by John Taylor » Sun Jan 06, 2019 4:10 am

Hi Everybody
I am looking for a particular winch that I saw early last year. Produced somewhere in Europe and similar in shape and style to a Titan Winch. Please can anyone direct me to identifying the suppliers of this winch.

A few people in the Scottish District have switched to these winches and using them in their IOMs. I want to try one in a Marblehead.

Regards
JT

Hi John

I happen to have a Titan Tornado surplus to requirements and needing a good home to go to if interested. It is one of the later models that use a 3 cell LiPO battery.

Well after some thought, plus taking in the advise from everyone, thanks to all. Im going with PDA Winches, the use of a Micro rudder servo and lightweight Lipo batteries. Loosing 100 grams is a realistic target when your just changing the radio configuration of my RM. Im sure increased sailing performance can be achieved.
