Geared winch installation
I just purchase a winch from Harbor Freight http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...temnumber=5798 can anyone give me any tips to installing this winch in my trailer?

Being that that winch is worm gear driven, I don't think that it will free wheel. Meaning that if you need to pull several feet of strap off the spool you will have to crank it off instead of just being able to release a ratchet lock and let the strap spool off freely. As far as mounting, I would visit trailer manufacturers web sites and look at the differant style of bow stops and see what will work best for your ski/trailer set up. I would re-think that winch though.
