Easier with a smaller boat though.

Indeed. I was kind of assuming the "6+m" of the OP's details might mean it's a long hard slog over a hot winch.......

thankyou for the sympathy ...... good news......i've now got my custom built cordless drill bit which is an alan key welded to a 14mm socket welded to a winch shaped lump of steel so its gonna be time to give it a test drive ...... it looks fairly amateur but this is the prototype ...... bad news boat is still at the menders ( see ribs and ribbing for that moan up ) . its gonna be this weekend at the earliest to test it out but there is nothing to lose ....... now where is the cordless drill ?

Just make sure you dont set it to hammer action .. and try and avoid spectators when the weld breaks .. they love that round here

Funny; I was thinking that a hammer drill would be the cat's meow in terms of torque to winch the boat up.

But, as can be surmised by my posts, I've never tried using either type of drill, so it's just supposition...

Film it and put it on youtube for us all to see. Then either:

(A) we all get a laugh at it disintegrates and bits of metal fly everywhere OR
(B) you get to be very smug as the boat glides effortlessly up the trailer.
