Electric Winch Kit
Electric Winch Kit
The Electric Winch Kit for the Shore Ramp PWC-50 adds another dimension of convenience and luxury to using your PWC from your shoreline. Simply attach the line and toggle the switch to winch your PWC out of the water in 60 seconds. The 2500lb rated winch easily pulls even larger 3-seater PWC’s up the ramp without straining.
Lowering the PWC is just as convenient – push the toggle the other way to winch the PWC back down. The power winch automatically holds the load when stopped at any point, which avoids the risks associated with a manual winch handle spinning rapidly when the ratchet is disengaged for lowering.
The included polished stainless steel hook won’t corrode when left in the water. The braided synthetic winch rope is easy on the hands yet super strong and durable. Powered by any 12v marine/rv or trolling motor battery (not included), the Electric Winch Kit can easily be installed remote from any electric power source without the need to run expensive wiring. The low voltage presents no shock hazard in such close proximity to the water’s edge. A typical group 24 marine/rv battery can power the winch for 50 to 100 cycles before needing recharging (12v battery and charger not included). See also our Solar Battery Box option (coming soon) for a convenient way to maintain the battery indefinitely without the need for any manual charging.
If you have two PWC’s on two Shore Ramp PWC-50’s side by side, two Electric Winch Kits can share a single battery.
The Electric Winch Kit bolts on directly in place of the manual winch supplied with the PWC-50. It can be ordered as an option when purchasing a new Shore Ramp PWC-50, or be retrofitted to existing Shore Ramp PWC-50 installations previously purchased.
To avoid the costs of shipping heavy batteries, the necessary 12v “deep-cycle” marine/rv battery is not included. Such batteries (and compatible chargers) are readily available from retailers such as Wallmart, Home Depot, Sears, Gander Outdoor, and many other marine parts suppliers. Suitable batteries can also be found at many auto parts suppliers and specialty battery retailers. The Electric Winch Kit comes with power cables that connect directly to a 12v deep cycle battery with 5/16” stud connections.
