If cost is the yardstick, definitely not the right solution. Not only the winch, but some sort of base adapter needs fabrication, and the setup needs a brake of some sort. I went with a Garhauer line clutch. All I can tell you is there will never be an instance where I go to raise the dinghy and be unable to do so. Never. A stark difference from the winches I've had over the years. Not a lot of "Plan B" built into those puppies.

Good luck.
