    You’ve chosen to upgrade from a manual winch to an electric winch. Now, you need to decide on motor placement. This is a critical design decision which largely depends on your boats available space below deck. Ask yourself: ‘What is going to fit, and what is going to be the least work?’.

    Electric winches are becoming increasingly common. Used to reduce the strain of trimming and hoisting sails, electric winches make sailing more accessible; with strength no longer a barrier, it’s easy to sail short-handed or with minimal crew, share sailing with family and friends, plus prolong your time on the water for years to come.
