Comments about Big Water 45 Saltwater Series Electric Anchor Winch:
I thought this would work well. I have 17 ft boat with 20 lb anchor. I have had it out 10 times in the past 10 months and this winch fails every time. They have a little slip gear clutch with little cogs on it and they keep shearing off. The company keeps sending me parts, but the design is just not very good. I plan to return it. Thank goodness I bought from West Marine and they have always treated me fairly. I am going after a windless next time.
