Now in Mirror-Polished Chrome or Lightweight Aluminum
Pewaukee, WI—Harken's Rewind™ Radial®, the first electric winch to both ease and trim, is now available in mirror-polished chrome or lightweight black aluminum to match boat aesthetics and sailing style. Operated by push button, the Rewind rotates and self-tails in both directions for the ease that makes cruising and shorthanded sailing more fun.
"The Rewind Radial electric winch is exactly what cruisers have been looking for in push-button sail control," said Harken Italy Engineering Manager, Michele Cazzaro.
"Rewind works no differently than a standard Harken electric 2-speed winch—fast trimming in first gear and more power in second. BUT! Turn the red knob at the bottom of the winch and you activate the patented Rewind function. Now this winch will ease out and trim in the sheet without going to the winch and manually releasing the line from the drum."
The Rewind is used to trim highly loaded jibs and mainsheets and to raise and lower halyards on boats from 10.6 m to 14.6 m (35 ft to 48 ft). The investment cast stainless steel arm keeps line captive. Load-carrying gears and pins are 17-4PH stainless steel for strength and durability.
