Skipper's Bronze Winch

29 Apr 21:

Skipper has a nice bronze winch on ONKAHYE's trailer, she ported it over from ONKAHYE's previous trailer. It was previously used as a centerboard winch on the family's Petrel 16 sailboat and before that on her Grandpa's boat trailer. He was in the Navy in the early 1900s and we wonder if the Navy is missing a winch somewhere?

Eddie added a safety chain to the bow stop frame.

If anyone has any info on this style winch, we'd sure like to hear about it in the comments!
