„The WinchRite is a marvelous piece of equipment on board, especially to hoist a heavy main sail. At least, if you have one that never fails.
But they do fail. The first one lasted for one and a half season before the electronics died, the second lasted three sailing trips before the gearbox started to spin without torque on the winch...
SVB was so kind to take it back without costs and return it to the manufacturer, which took five weeks to decide it should be replaced by a new one. That one eventually ended up in Bulgaria instead of Belgium by SVB mistyping the zip code (BG instead of BE), but finally reached its destination another two weeks later.
So far number three survived already 1 sailing trip since. Third time lucky? ;-)“
