Electric anchor winch

 Looking for some reviews, advise / recommendations for an anchor winch...

i have a 5.1m Quinny that I’m looking at mounting it to. Anchor well is a fairly good size and thinking of having it mounted in on a drum winch (some reinforcing will be required). 

Any brand or model ideas would be great or other options for this would be great.

 Look on youtube for the drum winch shootout. Have some perspective though as it was commissioned by lonestar. Hard to argue with the results of the tests they chose though.

For that sized boat you would be better off with a minn kota or motorguide... 

They work well and good for the quick pull up to cast lures stuff

 I have a Lonestar Gx1 drum on my 5.1 quintrex, but you will need to beef up the welding as around the well and numerous other areas as the standard welds break easy as they are more like tack welds.

 Cheers for the advise. 

I know I’m in for some extra welding being done but have a mate that can sort that.  

Never thought about the likes of a minn Kota so will look into them. 

Cheers Matt
