New toys. 

A box just arrived at the house and this is what was inside. The old winches were okay, but not up to modern standards.  Since I plan on doing some offshore passages with this boat I wanted self-tailers for the jib sheets so I can singlehand the boat while Lorena is off watch.  These are the Practical Sailor top rated winches so they should do the job okay.
