After a full day on the water, you and your crew are tired. It doesn't matter if you were swimming off the back of the pontoon boat, racing around the lake in your speed boat or just casting a line off the side of your fishing boat - when you get to shore, the last thing you want to deal with is a faulty hand crank on your boat trailer. You want a winch that makes your job easy and that lets you get out of the marina and back home sooner. Curt hand winches are constructed from cold-forged steel to provide structurally great pinions and eliminate gear-to-shaft bonding failures. They are designed to be mounted on a variety of trailers and are especially useful for boat trailers. Curt boat winches can also serve a number other winch applications, though they are not designed for vehicle towing. This Curt hand winch or boat winch features a capacity of 1,200 lb with a gear ratio of 4.2:1. It has a hub Dia of 3/4 in and a handle length of 7-1/2 in.
