Why do I need a winch?
Trailer winches provide the strength needed to lift your boat onto the trailer while on an inclined launching ramp. A trailer mounted winch contains a length of strong cable, rope or webbing. Attach the winch snap-clip to the bow of your boat and use the winch to lift your boat onto a trailer, or for sliding the boat backwards into the water at a controlled rate.
Manual winches provide the additional muscle power required for pulling your boat, while the rachet holds the boat so it doesn't slide backwards. A regular person using a manual winch can retrieve a boat weighing more than a ton. Larger winches have a lower gear ratio, allowing you to multiply your strength even more. Electric winches are powerful, using a low-stretch cable connected to your boat, and are ideal for larger, heavier vessels.
The angle of the boat ramp and trailer accessories will also play a role in winch capability. The load on your winch will be higher if your trailer is not equipped with rollers. Trailer rollers create less resistance, allowing you to lift your boat with less effort. Explore Anaconda rollers, brackets and other fittings suitable for your trailer and boat.
What winch do I need?
If your boat is a relatively small runabout a manual winch will do the trick. For additional pulling power, consider purchasing an electric powered winch. Here are a few great products available at Anaconda.
