Re: Winchrite winch winder

We've been using our Winchrite for 2 years now. Use it to haul up the main, winch up the outboard end of the RIB, furl the headsail & the Admiral uses it to winch me up the mast.

Have never run out of battery & it recharges quickly. I like the fact that it is reasonably water proof, has plenty of power & we have the holder mounted on the bulkhead near the halyard winch so it is always handy but securely stored.

Wouldn't be without it now. Saves so much energy.
