Best Winch Handle to Use

How do I determine what the best winch handle is for my use?


  • It's hard to tell which handle will be best for your use, a good general rule of thumb is that the longer the handle the more leverage you will have making trimming the sail easier. Go too long however and you might have clearance problems with a dodger frame, stanchion or bimini so it really depends on your boat and winch placement. My personal favorite for my Islander 30 is the 10" Lewmar One Touch Power Grip handle sku: 8740441 Hope this helps!
