Any recommendations as to winch sizes for the Achilles 24?
Would 8:1 be OK for jib sheet winches or would 16:1 be more appropriate?
Has anyone got any for sale?

The drawing I have of the deck fittings shows the sheet winches as Barlow No 16 and the halyard winches as Barlow No 15. As far as I can remember that is what is fitted to the boat and I find them ok.

You can take the Punt to my boat and have a look if you want.
