Set includes 2 winches.
These models represent the standard 7 feet (2.13 m) long x 45" (114 cm) wide by 44" (112 cm) tall boat winches used to raise and lower 26' whale boats as fit to many US Navy warships during and after World War Two.

Boat winches were supplied to the US Navy from several manufacturers and details and overall dimensions varied. This design is patterned after the boat winches that appear on board the Fletcher class destroyers USS Kidd DD-661, preserved as a museum ship at Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and USS The Sullivans DD-537, preserved as a museum ship at Buffalo, New York.
These boat winches are NOT the deck winches that appear astride Turret #3 on fast battleships like USS Missouri. Deck winches fit to fast battleships are much larger than boat winches and have different features. Some USS Missouri BB-63 plans erroneously label the deck winches astride Turret #3 as boat winches.
Dimensions for a single boat winch:
14.82 mm x 7.94 mm x 7.74 mm
