J80 - Harken 32.2A WInch replacement

Recommended Posts

I own J80 hull number 10, Boondoggle.  The two winches are Harken 32.2A and the section of the aluminum drums which hold the pawls have become enlarged.  I need either replacement drums or new winches altogether.  PROBLEM: Harken has discontinued the 32.2A winch.  Has anyone else here already solved this dilemna?  Any ideas?

Mahalo, Holokai

Call Harken. They may have NOS parts!  Their Customer Service is usually great!

Lewmar EVO or Ocean 30ST.  That is the European standard and has been for new Js since they stopped making the ST-32.2.  Now they don't do that much on the jib, so you could safely go down to a ST-20 but that might be small.  I am for lobbying the class for a rule change to the 35.

Nope. Just saying it’s the closest Harken size.  I’ve got my Lewmars in the basement waiting for the Harkens to die... I may go first!

There are two currently on EBay- current price $665.

Not my winches, and I have no knowledge of the seller.

There are other brands other than Harken that produce a 2 speed 30 size self tailing winch, some even one size down: http://www.antal.it/ENG/XT16-2AL_en 

I have some Antal rings, etc. But their winches are fairly rare here.  I wish Pontos made the compacts that worked for the class rules.

I have one of their V grip clutches on my 80. Good quality.
