If any of you guys that replaced that manual winch with the new electric type don't have a use for for it, I can use it . Would keep my arms in shape.

I think FF is talking abut kedging off....beefy manuals are usually much more suitable for that...can be manually done with an electric one but many don't have the mechanical advantage or 2 speeds.

Actually, I have to admit I have used my power winch to do just that once or twice - worked well, but I might bring down the ire of the ruiningthegears brigade so I keep that quiet too. But my winch is a NZ built Nilsson, and its a real strong mongrel. Had the brushes done recently and the guy said the gearbox is good for another 30 years in his opinion.
