Steering you can rely on

This site is run by Cliff Mogridge, Lewmar / Whitlock agent and former Lewmar employee; based in Emsworth, Hants. U.K.

Cliff was appointed as Whitlock/Lewmar agent by Lewmar MD Robert Hill in 2005 to support the steering sector of the business.

Cliff, also known as Whitlock South/Winch Servicing, provides back up for the original Whitlock steering systems to the current Lewmar steering systems.


We offer steering checks locally on the Solent (Chichester to Southampton) or further afield for 2 boat packages. This service is like an MOT for your steering system, aimed to keep you and your crew safe. If you have any play, loose or stiff steering then it needs to be checked. If it’s going to fail it will be when you need it most, in heavy weather.

Don’t risk it – Get it checked!
