Any of you guys use an electric winch for retrailering you boat? I have a Sea Eagle 166 and last year I modernised my trailer slightly to accomodate an electric winch for that very purpose. Works a dream! I launch and retrieve mainly at Port Eynon beach on the Gower, beach the boat on a falling tide, unhitch the trailer, line up with the boat, attach cable and winch away, no bad backs! This season I have modernised even further and am now able to launch by winching the boat off the trailer as well, via a series of pullies. This means no pushing the boat on the trailer until it floats off! Can now launch and retrieve on my own on a beach, FABULOUS! Looking forward to a very fishy summer! I do have some pictures of the pullies etc. but don't know how to attach them as yet. When I figure it out I will post them.
