The winches worked great! It's great to be able to finally watch the sails while triming them with one hand. The self-tailer jaws gripped the line well, and there were no problems with the stripper arm peeling it off.

Good job!

They work spectacularly! I've been in many conditions now, some quite windy, and they bite every time and I don't notice a bit of drawback. Thanks again for helping me get those onto my boat. They've made single handing and crewed sailing much more enjoyable.

I think this product is fantastic, and appreciate two things the most as an industrial engineer and boat rebuilder/cruiser the leverage of mechanical invention and strength of your design , and the personal approach. I attached a photo of our 1979 45 Explorer off the coast of Southern California for your viewing.

We really love the new winchmates , They work great!
Rolling up the jib and tacking was so much easier with just the 2 of us !
And they do LOOK awesome!
Thanks again

So far I am really impressed with the quality and the look and I am very excited to get them onto my boat. We are on a C&C 38 that we are bringing back to life and this just lets us free up a little extra to invest in other areas of the boat.
