Be the first to comment

What is the issue?
Winches maintenance is infrequent but a large and time consuming task when it comes around. Once their finish has degraded it is very expensive to recoat.

Why address this?
Reducing the environmental wear and extend time in-between services will save time and money.

How to address this?
Make a set of winch hoods and place them over each winch when not they are not in service.
