Recently, the customer has questions about the size of the winch that his ship should be equipped with when making an enquiry. Today, I am here to answer this question!

The first is the weight issue,The general rule is to select a winch with a capacity rating of at least 3/4th the combined weight of your boat, motor, fuel and gear.

Secondly, what exactly is the marine winch?

The marine winch, as an anchor winch and/or traction winch, has a device for installing on the ship deck structure, and is characterized in that it constitutes a box-type base module on the upper surface of the base module in the deck area It is used to install the winch and to accommodate the drive device and the transmission device in a covered inner chamber, where the base module can be integrated in a dead zone of the hull structure, in a recess of the deck structure and can pass through A supporting frame of a frame of the deck structure is supported, and a hollow profile is formed at least in one axial direction by the side walls of the base module connected to the frame.

Therefore, when choosing your own marine winch, you can choose the most suitable marine winch as long as you consider the problem of your own weight and the load of the winch.
