Electric Winches

Recommended Posts

Because of some serious health problems, I am going to have to use an electric winch for my boat. It's a 16 ft. C-Hawk with a 60 HP Yamaha 4 stroke and probably fully loaded weighs less than 2000 lbs. I know absolutely nothing about electric winches. Can anyone give me advise on brands, local dealers, installation, etc.? Thanks

I would stay away from the company called Power Winch I had bad luck with one of their products, customer support was decent but parts should not have failed that soon after purchase. Managed to fix it and then lost the key fob remote control, they want over a hundred bucks to replace it. I am going to replace the whole winch with something else.


Side note: Power Winch has a bad rap on many of the Boating forms as well, found this out while doing the research trying to fix mine.
