I was a bit nervous about servicing my winches. They were not old (8 years) but we'd only owned the boat for two years and who knows what torture they had been put through? I chose to service them because they were making terrible noises under load and did not seem to operate smoothly.

The actual servicing was very easy. The instructions cover a wide range of Lewmar winches, so just make sure you follow the right instructions. Take your time and ensure you don't drop small pieces that might get lost (working on a clear flat surface is best). The instructions are clear and easy to follow. Everything you are likely to need is included in the kit.

After servicing the winches operated like new, smooth and no disturbing sounds.

The only possible negative I can think of is that in the instructions Lewmar recommends servicing the winches 3 times during the season, plus at the start and end of the season - so in other words 5 times a season! Since we are in freshwater (Lake Huron) I don't know for sure but I can only guess that servicing of winches is needed more frequently in saltwater. But since you can simply disregard these instructions and follow whatever course you wish, this is really not a negative.

I would highly recommend the maintenance pack to anyone thinking of servicing their Lewmar winch.
