Re: Chrome plating and powder coating
KS, this is probably evident. You don't have to replace the entire winch, just buy a new drum. It's probably a little more expensive than a quality re-chroming, but at least you know you have a durable product. You would get the teeth back too, assuming there are any on your drums.
I have no experience with powder coating, but I've seen my fair share of painted dorade vents. I would think you would be repainting with some regularity, but it would be fairly simple.
