Has anyone installed an electric winch on a Montauk 190. I just purchased a Powerwinch 315. Is there any modification that has to be done or do I just pull off the manual winch and stick on the electric? Thks, Fred

I assume you mean for the trailer.
Have you tried liquid rollers? It makes a huge reduction in the effort to winch the boat on.

Liquid rollers is a silicone spray that contains a less aggressive solvent than the typical hardware store silicone spray. I'm guessing they selected that solvent to be more gentle to the bunk carpet, but I don't know for sure.

I've been using hardware store and diveshop silicone on my
bunks for almost 12 years. No problems with the carpet, no
problems with the gelcoat. I did replace everything about
three years ago, but that was because a bracket rusted through.

I do about a third to a half can once a year. If I had a
good opportunity, I'd do it twice a year, but the other than
having the whaler in the water for a couple of days at the
rendezvous, the bunks never dry out.

Also, there are two-speed mechanical winches. Their low gear
would haul an M1A1 Abrams on the trailer.
