Re: Keel winch woes. Is this one good?

sealover,

Did you have to remove the keel to do this? I have a V17, and I'd like to replace the keel winch with the one you purchased (I actually live less than a mile from the Northern Tool and Equipment world headquarters). The only issue is, I'd like to do this without removing the boat from my trailer, as I intend for this to be a first step in troubleshooting other issues. If it doesn't work, I'm planning on getting someone to lift the boat onto a drydock so I can inspect the keel, but I'd rather not do this unless absolutely necessary...

Do you know if this is possible?
