Can’t pin it if you have a 2 or 3 speed winch

Seems no one on FW lost this, if any one wants it, let me know and it's yours.

Pick up Warnbro.

The actual handle part that you grab onto is plastic and I'd guess has been run over by a car as its cracked.

 God knows I've dropped mine leaving the ramp so many times I don't deserve to still have it!

some ppl never learn... as my wife says... too often I'm afraid. 

good onya for posting on here Saint... maybe leave it at nearest ramp to where you found it?

Just a thought.

 I've lost a bunch of handles

Wed, 2022-01-19 13:36

 I've lost a bunch of handles and found a bunch over the years so I'm probably about even now. I had to use a socket set to winch the boat up one time.

 

We eventually drilled a hole through the handle and the gear nut and it's now held on with a bolt and nut.

 

If we ever need to use one of the other 2 gears we can just undo the bolt to move the handle. On metro ramps we drive the boat on and only need to winch up the last couple of feet, so we don't normally change gears.
