Harken Tech Team in Cape Town for the 2014-15 Volvo Ocean Race

Harken Tech Team in Cape Town to service the 65's.

  1. Harken technicians removed all eight winches from the boat and took them to our workshop within the Volvo boatyard where they were cleaned and inspected.

  2. Cape Town was a partial service level so all pawl springs were replaced.

  3. The winches were then reassembled and lubricated onboard the boat.

  4. The drive system, including three MX pedestals, four 606 gear boxes, and one X- Box were visually inspected and any work required carried out.
