Default Electric Winch

Done a search and I found 1 setup.
I would like to see what you guys are using. Pictures, brands, capacity, etc.
I have a 32í Fountain and load on a steep ramp. Itís a pain to get the boat where it needs to be. I have to really sink the trailer to get it right. Iíve tried not submerging as far and I still have to back it in to get it on the bow stop. I load a lot by myself so anything to make my life easier.
Thanks!

If memory serves me right I think it was only like 1000 pound electric winch, but if you can tell from the pictures itís has a pulley in the front so it doubles the strength?

You need 2 pulleys for that to be true.

I believe one pulley doubles the pull.

I had a Powerwinch RC30 on my Sonic 31SS trailer. They say it's good for a 11,500 lb boat. It sure didn't have any problem moving the Sonic.

Iíll admit when Iím wrong. The force on the winch and the hook will be the same. The pulley side is doubled. Iíve been out of college for almost 10 years.
