    Size 28 with the power of a 45! Bigger sails used to mean you needed bigger winches. Not anymore, thanks to the Compact Winch from Pontos. This little winch combines the best of the other Pontos winches--power and speed. First gear on the Compact hauls in line twice as fast as a conventional two-speed winch; simply reverse direction on the winch handle to drop into second gear, where you will feel the hauling power of a 45 winch. The Compact packs a lots of advantages: light weight (just under 8 lbs.), small footprint (just over 5 inches, equal to a 28), a working load of 1,870 lbs. that matches that of the others' 40 winches, and the hauling power of a 45, increasing your sailing performance and comfort.

    Compact Two-Speed Winch Features:

    • Weighs just under 8 lbs. and only 5 inches wide
    • Hauls line faster than a 40 winch, has the same maximum working load as a 40 winch
    • Hauls as powerfully as a 45 winch
    • Uses the same line dimensions of 40 winch, so retrofitting is easy
    • Corrosion-proof components
