Two Vs One speed ST winches in the cockpit

Post by Southern Gales » Sat Feb 06, 2016 1:50 pm

I'm thinking of switching out the stock winches in the CP for single speed Lewmar#16 Self tailers. The self tailers will be a big help when single handing and with green crew. But, my concern is sacrificing head sail adjustment when going to single speed from two speed. Is it worth the switch if I can find a deal on a set of used self tailers? Are their any other concerns I should consider?
