Compact mooring winch

2018 November 1

The Compact Light Retractable Mooring Winch from Harken stows flush completely below deck, but is significantly smaller, taking up about half the space of similar winches on the market. It also weighs 66% less with the same mechanical advantage. Designed with a drum with five aluminum columns that rotate together around a center axis, the CLR offers more line-holding power and low-speed torque than traditional drums. It also has internal LED lights to help in low-light situations. It retracts with a switch. It is available in two sizes with either 12- or 24-volt electric or hydraulic power. Deck plates are available in aluminum, chrome or woodgrain finishes. CLR Mooring Winch, www.harken.com
