The new mooring winch represents the second MacArtney winch system in operation with MBARI, adding to a MacArtney ROV and AUV tether management winch system in operation on R/V Rachel Carson.

The new MacArtney MERMAC Mooring Winch is designed as a powerful self contained steel construction with protection frame, replaceable drum, level wind, gear box, electric motor and remote control.
