Sounds good, ordered them this morning.

:: not really, the speed ratio isn't that much better, I
:: just had planned on using the 16's eventually on the
:: cabin top, and adding additional 16's to the genoa,
:: however, I found a set of 32's on ebay for the price of
:: one 32 and decided to add those instead. They are nice
:: in a blow though.
::
:: :: Thanks for the input, would you recommend that I go with
:: :: the 32's over the two speed 16's?

:: :: ::
:: :: :: I completed a winch upgrade to the boat about a year ago
:: :: :: where I replaced the Lewmars with Harkens. I started out
:: :: :: with the Harken 16's single speed on the genoa winches,
:: :: :: and have recently moved those to the cabin top for
:: :: :: halyard use, and placed Harken 32s 2 speed on the genoa.
:: :: :: The Harken winches are excellent in ALL respects.

:: :: :: :: 27 from Barient 10 to a two speed Harken 16X2. Anybody
:: :: :: :: have any input on this? I have found the Barient 10's
:: :: :: :: inadequate in a good blow, especially for the genoa.
:: :: :: ::
:: :: :: :: Your input would be greatly appreciate!
