Disassembly of Sailboat Winch To disassemble remove the drum from the base of the winch using the screw at the bottom of the winch handle socket. Simply unscrew it pull the socket out and the drum will lift off. As you lift the drum be aware the winch roller bearing cages may momentarily stick inside the drum and could unexpectedly drop out. Make sure they dont bounce off the deck into the water. Now you can remove all the winch gears and bearings for cleaning. Even though the sailboat winch only goes back together one way it wont hurt to take a good look at everything.
And on my opinion a wooden sailboat both feels more solid. The heavier wood lets the sailboat feel more solid in the water and thus a little bit safer. A sailboat is much easier to modify than a fiberglass boat. Just in case you need adjustments to your wooden sailboat you need only lumber treated for boat use and little know-how. While with fiberglass you are looking at either an impossible job or one that will require a lot of time and money if you are going to compare it with the wooden sailboat. And if you choose this kind of sailboat make sure you have a complete inspection done of the entire boat about and below. Always keep in mind that wood will require a lot of maintenance and must frequently painted or treated to keep intact.
The sailboat cruiser is interested in having fun being safe and enjoying the fellowship with other boaters... in a stationary situation. It is very hard to have cocktails or enjoy conversation while the boat is moving... as it is when you are sailboat racing. Sailboat cruising versus sailboat racing is as different as day and night. I would not normally compare circumnavigation to sailboat cruising... but rather use it to illustrate a point. I had a conversation with Bill Pinckney a few months after he had become the first African-American to circumnavigate the globe alone. I asked him what was the secret to successful circumnavigation. His answer was very simplistic..." You have to stay healthy and you have to stay on board"...very similar to how to enjoy sailboat cruising. Tacking is a maneuver performed many times in the course of a sailboat race... I asked Pinckney how many times he tacked going around the world... he thought about it for a minute and replied..."Once I think". Sailboat cruising versus sailboat racing... very different one is a lifestyle... the other is a competitive sport.
Most sailboats are fiberglass these days but if you are looking for a really strong sailboat you are likely to choose steel or aluminum. Fiberglass is fine for normal use but if you are going cross oceans or give your sailboat a hard life metal is best. They are also good materials if you want to get your own design of sailboat built. The reason aluminum or steel are best is that metals are both strong and stiff and when hit really hard they bend - fiberglass and even the most advanced composites will break and even shatter. Then the sailboat will almost certainly sink. A sailboat with a dent in the hull can keep going.
