Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Electric winch WARNING
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I never heard anything until the motor on the starboard winch motor was broken open and the armature came out of the motor. It woke me up. The ¼ inch studs that hold the motor together were also sheared off.
We sailed home from St Maarten this spring and I heard nothing from the port winch. I guess the winch makes so much noise the sound is not heard.
Please let me know if you need for me to send you bolts.

Sounds like a disaster about to happen! I don't guess you could hear a thump when the motor was engaged? I'll check mine in the morning and report if I see any problems.
