I haven't gone to it yet but I am considering using one of the synthetic lines this year instead of SS line, when I re and re the winches.

Got all the wire rope off my boat - Amsteel.

If your winch is not self-braking it is an issue if you have to leave the controls for any time, the load will succumb to gravity and can be a damn nuisance, if not a hazard.

Good advice but so is that a 300 lb dingy and motor probably will not cause even the cheapest of Harbor Freight winches to slip...at least that has been my experience with several of them.

An update on the Rule T33S winch that failed last summer (this thread). I took the other winch, same type into "Brighouse Electric" for a check to see if it needed "remanning". It was fine. The fellow said they were certainly able to redo the winch if necessary. Someone had mentioned there were no longer any spare parts and the technician said there was nothing special with them and they could reman them if required. Brighouse rebuilds/remans alternators, starter motors and winches and the like. That's all they do. So if your winch motor fails, take it into an alternator place and see what they can do with it.
