    I need some new pawls and springs for a Meisnner 10 winch. No one over here seems to have any and the one company I found on a search never answered my e-mail.
    Anyone have any links/place for me to contact?

    Thanks Lazy, I'll follow up that link.. From what I've seen when I've been servicing my other winches (barlo & Clevco) the pawls and springs all seem very similar, do you think something from a similar sized winch of another brand might fit?

    no, the pawls, are a very close fit when you slot em in, suprised they went, fitted a big pair hydraulics on Nimbus, mind you she has only sailed about 6000 miles, nah holland will help you, try calling by jajah cheaps as chips, www.jajah.com

    Further to my last message that is a similar link to what I tried.
    I sent messages to the British agents and the American ones.

    The e-mail to the poms bounced and the yanks never answered but I will try main branch in the Netherlands this time.

    Actually they 'went' missing as in not even there.. First time I serviced the winches myself always thinking that particular winch was just 'busted' so to my surprise found both top pawls and springs to be gone.

    Yet more on that, just got a bounce to the e-mail I tried sending to the Dutch mob.
