I have a 3000# fiberglass boat on a bunk trailer that gives my back trouble everytime I winch it on the trailer. I've had two lower back surgeries and not looking forward to a third! I have a smaller 1200 # hand winch on the trailer and was considering upgrading to a heavier two speed winch or possibly going to electric. Electric would be nice but would restrict me to always using my truck to pull the boat instead of letting some buddies take turns towing with their trucks when we go. If a 2 speed hand type would make a big difference then that would be cheaper and keep towing options open. If that wouldn't make a big difference then I would want to go electric. Appreciate all the input of those with all the years of experience! Brands of winches, # ratings, rigging power, etc all appreciated.
