Hi
I first used 3000lb Winchmax run from a 45AH car battery, this pulled 6.5 Mtr RIB back on the trailer in under a minute. I think it has 15Mtr of cable on the drum which gives the option of using a snatch block if it struggled (this option would double the pulling power but take nearly two minutes to recover), or reduce the length of the cable on the drum if I wanted to.



Never had any issues with the 3000lb winch but I now use the 4000lb which has the jet wash unit

Good luck with yours

6.5 Humber Destroyer with Ficht 150. The winch is pulling about a ton when we recover onto a roller trailer.
It took us a long time to be convinced a little electric winch could pull this up knowing how hard it is to winch by hand. Could not believe how easy the electric winch did it. Wish we had switched years ago.


Like PD said; -

But you're not lifting the dead weight, you are pulling. On the horizontal you only have to overcome friction, even if you were pulling up a 45deg slip, you'd still only be pulling half the dead weight plus a touch of rolling resistance. The friction between boat & trailer actually reduces as the slip gets steeper, but the dead weight increases. In theory a 2000lb/1 tonne winch should p155 it.


Hope it helps

As someone with this model ,,,, 6m Cobra normal towed/recover weight Inc 80 litres fuel @1200 kg plus usually recover with 1x 12l twinset, 2 x 15l and 3ltr 's. 30kg weight belts and kit approx 160 kg . Total 1360 + kg . I also often have one crew on board during retrieval
Never had any problems. As others say - it's a rolling load as opposed to a deadlift
I don't think you will have an issue

Jeff, thanks for the information and it certainly helps re-assure my doubts.

update, an un-expected one.

the trailer has the wrong winch on it from SBS i have just noticed while looking at everything i brought home today, it isn't what i was told it would be anyway.

it is a DL 2000a 2 speed winch, it should be the DL2500a 2 speed winch. the difference is the gear reduction is 12.4:1 and i thought it was the 2500's 17.3:1. that would explain why winching my boat on has always been a bit of a PITA and required you have the weetabix to wind up the last 5 feet.

i'll order up the 2500 and be content there for now, i will revisit the leccy option in the future or if someone ever sells one.

That would explain it....I was wondering what all the Fuss was about!...got the same Rig,and it's very easy and straight forward to use/recover.
I'm sure you'll find yours the same now

Indeed it does, glad I double checked everything before ordering now.

The leccy winch has an appeal for sure but it was I need to change to it rather than I want to as if something happened to me there is no way someone else can get the boat on properly.

It should be 40% easier now (and slower unfortunately) so that should be fine.
