I’m looking for a used Lewmar D2 Superlock rope clutch (single 10-12mm) to match an existing (~1990s) rack of clutches on my Farr 37. See pic.

Anyone got one or have any intel on where I could find a matching spare? Preferably from an Aussie salvage outfit?

cheers,

Andy

Thanks, I’ve contacted “water flea market” (hah) and they have some triple versions, but not singles. I’ll get onto the other suggested shops too... but yeah, as Max says, an Australian source would be ideal. Unfortunately, international sourcing is looking to be more expensive than buying a modern Lewmar DC2 locally (but that wouldn’t match so well).

Any good yacht wreckers in Australia I should know about?

As it happens I have some. 12-14mm (1/2-9/16) single and double now with two more doubles and a triple later in the year. The retracting springs are broken, but they hold just fine. I'm switching to dyneema running rigging in a smaller size so clutches are being replace.

Oops, I see you're after the smaller size. Oh well....

Oops again. I just checked. The double is a 10-12. It's not hard to switch the internals. I'm not very close to Oz though.
