I just bought the new one from Power Winch this year, made a braket so it slips on the gunnel and plugs in. When not in use I put it under a seat. It has worked great and less expensive if you shop around.

I have already put the boat away and didn't have any pic's in use. I took these to help show what I did.
I fabricated a aluminum bracket that bolts to the existing bolt pattern on the puller frame. then welded the drop down piece with the anlge piece. To mount it I tip it down and it hooks unded the gunnel lip and lays flat on the surface. Can't fall over and tension only pulls in your favor. When done just unplg and tip back off. Works with a push button that is mount fluch beside it and can work with my knee while I feed the rope in a tote.
You could aslo bolt some thing to the gunnle to mount to. Hope this help with the visual?
I made the same bracket and installed the same unit with similar switch. Seems like it was around $400 or so for the unit + wiring and switch. This unit is nice because it is so compact. Thought it would be nice to have a davit arm but I don't think its really necessary. As mentioned before, shop around no matter what you decide to get.
