have a look at a chainsaw winch its basically a capstan winch powered by a saw powerhead that would be the ticket or butcher a cheap drum winch into something useable

Thanks BB I've looked at all the motor stuff I like the idea of the Barton winch as it lends its self to be mounted on the trailer I can use my anchor rope for a long reach I'm just not sure it would be man enough never had anything to do with sailing stuff.

It probably can be man enough - the force on a big sail is fairly large, but I wonder if it can really be fast enough for you - they are geared (to help the pulling power) and pulling many metres of rope would take a long time, so unless itís just for the last part of a recovery Iím not sure itís the right solution. They are also usually a bit sensitive to the leading angle of the rope - so if you do go that way you will probably need to add a fair lead to align it reliably on all sorts of slopes.

The gear ratios are 8:1 I assume that is 8 cranks to 1 turn? You will be cranking for a long time...

Plenty of cheap 12v winches about seen lots of fishing vessels (leisure) use them to get the boats up onto the trailers small plastic battery box on drawbar and off hey go lots of towball mount winches which might run off the 13pin/ secondary caravan fridge supply......

Issue will be length of pull most small ones are under 10m how far are you pulling the sib?

thanks lads it was a long shot i know i could turn my trailer winch round but i only get 6m pull it was a continuous rope pull i wanted such as a capstan, understand the lead angle that could be just a loop to pass the rope through. i was trying to avoid batteries/engines if i could. there are some small petrol engined capstans but at a grand not worth it to me.

How about getting someone to make a modified spool for a standard electric winch so as it can be used like a capstan winch....

They're cheep as chips.

i'll have to look into it LT i could towbar mount easily.
but i wanted to throw the anchor line out fix to a suitable point and winch in from the trailer may be have to look for a large drum manual winch geared.

what do you think to this £60 if it dont work its not a big deal man enough to pull the trailer and boat ?

a sailing winch is designed to pull high loads over a short distance typically a meter. That sky winch looks the biz! Nik
