The dry-hubs launch and retrieve is a dream for many Florida anglers—back down only until the tire tread is wet, preserving the metal parts of your trailer from the corrosive effects of salt water. An electric winch is a big help for this, and the 712 Trailer Winch is well established with a solid, reliable reputation. Rated for a maximum boat weight of 7,500 pounds, the 60-amp, 12-volt winch features smooth power-in/free-wheel out action (including remote) and a one-year limited warranty. The unit weighs 33 pounds and houses 40 feet of 7/32-inch cable. Price online is $528.94, plus shipping, from www.powerwinch.com .
