Expert Reply:

The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch w/ Automatic Brake - TUFFPLATE Finish - 2,500 lbs # DL14958 you asked the question from is a great option for your boat lift. This is a very nice option that will keep the handle from free-wheeling and possibly hurting someone. The automatic brake stops the load when hand cranking stops.

Another great option is the Fulton High-Performance Brake Winch - Cable Only - 2,500 lbs # F143201. This also has an automatic brake and a zinc finish rated for 600 hours of salt spray.

Both have a 5 year warranty. The biggest difference is the enclosed versus exposed gears.
