Can anyone tell me what size winches should be fitted to an Achilles 24?
All 4 of those fitted to my boat are different make and sizes.
Does anyone have any for sale?

I assume these stated sizes are correct as I need to replace my halyard winch?

I'm thinking of buying Antal winches because they're not high use items and are cheap at 50 quid. Does any one have any experience of them? Thanks.
