Not shilling for WM but...just in case anyone was dreaming about winches...it's a short time window/but sounds like good deal.

Would the Ocean 30ST be the one for over the companion way?

My boat only have one non-selftailing. Would it be good to have self tailing for both of these?

Ben,
I have 2 Lewmar 30STs over the companionway on my Mk 1.5 just like the ones you linked from WM.  My opinion - If I only had one non-self tailing winch, the port side cabin top would be the place to have it based on the way my boat is rigged.  YBYC on whether or not it's worth the money to replace your non-ST with an ST winch.

Self tailers on the mainsheet and jib sheets make it a lot easier, especially when sailing shorthanded.

Looks like WM won some boat bucks this weekend... :shock:

Ben : I found that a ST winch was handy for running rigging that you frequently use.  That's why I never spent the $$ boat-bucks for the port side cabin top winch for the Genoa.
By all means you need a ST for the main halyard.
