Why spend thousands for electric winches?

Irwin 32--


Do you use candles instead of electric lights? Do you use a bike or a horse instead of a car?

Come on. Using labor-saving devices do not make one a wussy. An electric winch to raise and lower a large main sail is a labor-saving device. I''m 58 and hope to be sailing when I''m 78. I''ll use my electric winch to help me get there.
