Olson mfg RB-2 dinghy hoist...ungodly honking noise!

Olson mfg RB-2 dinghy hoist...ungodly honking noise!

Postby Gerald Guertin » Mon Sep 25, 2017 3:16 pm

I am a new member w/ an NT 37 equipped with an Olssson Mfg RB-2 hoist for loading/unloading my RIB.
The hoist works well but it makes an intermittent, loud "honking" sound as the power winch winds the cable in or out.
Anyone else have this problem and more importantly do you know of a solution?

Gerald,

Have you tried contacting the Manufacturer? https://www.olsenchain.com/resources or 800.328.1906

The Hull Truth Bulletin Board has a discussion of Noisy winches: http://www.thehulltruth.com/boating-for ... nosie.html NOTE THE SPELLING OF NOISE IS INCORRECT, BUT THAT'S THE ADDRESS

Call me if you would like to brainstorm some. My number is in the Members Directory. My hoist is fairly old and it squeaks during lifting operations, but it works like a champ.

Best wishes,

Randy Wickers, Membership Director

Just an update on my problem. I contacted Olsen Mfg. and I'm pleased to say that they stepped up and went to great lengths to help me remedy the problem. I'm back in business and I can now raise/lower my dinghy without waking up
everyone in whichever idtllic harbor we happen to be visiting. Thanks all!
