I had a Lofrans winch on my old boat and it broke the main shaft.

I could get no information or parts out of Lofrans so I fitted a Vetus winch which worked well and still is as far as I know.

I always int...

I dont Know the Targa 27 well, but I have a sedan 36 which is sister ship to turbo 36 and shares most parts, I have refitted a lot of it and sourced parts.

Let me know what you are after for T36.

I may be able to help for T27 or point you in th right direction?
