Hi, Guys, Have any of you ever designed a system for loading a cat onto your trailor using an electric winch system? Wife and I in early seventies are starting to feel the back and knees a bit more these days.... Care to share your ideas?????????? Thanks DJ

maybe a better gear ratio and better quality winch should do it
My motor boat uses a 2 speed winch to pull up 6000 lbs this should be almost without effort on a 400 lb Hobie

Be sure and hook up the boat around the front cross bar and not the dolphin striker. You can bend the dolphin striker.
