Hey all,

I've been annoyed at not having a secure place to keep a winch handle near the mast. I've seen the store-bought variations, but was dissatisfied with how they mount. So I created this holder for my mast.

It's a 3" PVC cut a tad longer than my longest winch handle. I drilled holes and seized two sail hanks two it, and two holes for a keep strap. The strap is tubular webbing with bungy cord as a "core"; it is stopper-knotted in place and holds the handle securely in the pipe. The point of the webbing is to keep the bungy from degrading quickly.

The photo should make it clearer.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
