electric winches draw a fair current, so you would need either to run the battery supply to the trailer, or fit a battery to the trailer and charge it from the vehicle, either way the connections need to be good and kept out of the salty stuff. if you go down the route of a trailer mounted battery you will need to make sure the charging circuit is switched off before the winch is operated otherwise you will blow the fuse in the charging circuit. Britpart do a good range of electric winches, worth a look

I have a nice motor at the back that pushes my boat nicely onto the trailer.

I have Superwinches 'winch in a bag' to get my trailer into my garage, as there's a slope up to it, works really well. If you got a winch to help recover the boat on the trailer I reckon you'd only use it once, possibly twice, as by the time you've rigged it it would have been quicker to use the regular one.
