Winches and blocks are designed to handle lines and loads associated with their designated task. Line control and routing is accomplished by this hardware. Winches require regular maintenance through cleaning and lubricating. Powered winches require special maintenance to prolong their lifespan and reliability. Blocks can lose bearings and break over time and weathering can cause line movement to become difficult. Quality replacement hardware and regular maintenance make line handling easier and more efficient. Bennett Brothers Yachts can service, specify, and install new hardware on your sailboat.
