Why spend thousands for electric winches?
An electric winch is understandable; they certainly have extended many a sailor''s life on the water.<P>But this gizmo seems to be an inefficient way to motorize a winch. It requires an inverter to run an AC power drill, and the extension cord running down the comapnionway. Better, I think, to go through the expense to do it right and fit winches with electric motors under the base.<P>If you can''t find the time to do it right, from where will you find the time to do it over?
