We have again damaged our inmast furling system.

Discovered Hanse and/or Lewmar made an error as our 50 EVO winches having fitted with larger motors & gearboxes intended for 50 Ocean series winchThis makes our winches fiercely powerful with ~3 time more torque than intended. We are aware previous owner fitted a whole new furling mechanism.

Lewmar UK asked for photographs of motor/geabox and confirmed the error. Unfortunately our boat is now nine years old and well beyond any warranty. 

Others with 50 EVO winches might like to check they have 700W motors fitted and not 1600W motors as error might have been repeated. As careful as we try to be, with such power, any small oversight due to tiredness or inexperience of our guests can easily cause damage.
