New boat winch

Acquired a nice 8m long 11mm Dyneema rope with SS hook so thinking might as well get a new winch.
Are the braked ones ok to use

I paid about 100 for mine from here. They make them to order in-house, so will make up anything you want. You could also try Union Industries in Leeds.

Yup here http://www.yachtropes.co.uk
I call in though as local to me and cash talks getting some other bits as well SS ratchets couple of mooring lines with eyes on each end
The winch rope works out about 40
I've prob gone ott with 11 mm but I can use it for other things as well

You could also try typing in Winchmax on eBay. Guy is in Suffolk and has given first class service.
I got a 3000lb winch off him last year and wish I had got it years ago it is fantastic. I use a 45ah car battery which I keep in the boot with a Anderson plug. It takes 46 seconds to recover the boat.

It might be worth a look.
