Boat Winch Buying Guide

Boat Winch Materials

Most boat winches use steel cable due to the weight of the boats. The best cable boat winches include a level wind mechanism to prevent cable snarls. Cable boat winches also allow you to add a pulley block that will nearly double the weight capacity if needed. For smaller boats, rope or nylon straps can work well. Be sure to understand weight capacity before choosing rope or nylon.
