PostHeaderIcon Quattro winch

a winch with two drum diameters, one above the other. The wide diameter lower drum is used to trim spinnaker sheets quickly, whereas the smaller-diameter upper drum is used when more power and self-tailing ability is needed for halyards or other control lines. Manufactured by Harken. Sometimes referred to as quads.
