I haven’t used the boat winch yet because it is winter in Canada but it seems like it is a very well built winch. I searched all over the internet for a 2 speed winch that you don’t have to remove the handle to switch gears and that proved nearly impossible. The only place I could find that had a winch with a stationary handle for 2 speeds, that was rated for the weight I needed, and had a strap rather than cable and was pacific. Because it was so hard to find I ordered two identical winches and at first I was a bit hesitant to spend that much online from a site I’d never heard of but Pacific Boat Trailers proved to be very safe, reliable, and professional.
