They are electric anchor winches.

Anybody used them? How do the work? Do they hold up well?

I'm looking at putting a DeckHand40 on my boat...But want some feedback from some that have used them as to there usefullness or should I keep looking?

I found them for about 250 bucks and that includes shipping.

hey sixshooter if you remeber my little tub i use a 40 lb anchor and sometimes it is not enough. once in a while i will end up dragging it. your boat is a bit bigger than mine so i would go bigger. i also heard the same thing about winches. go with a better one. :D or if you can afford to feed the wench youhad aboard than keep that one. i thought it wasnt bad.:D he also does a good job pulling fish from the wood.;)
