The gear tab/stop on my winch broke. It say it's a 1,300 lb fulton, but also say 1,500 max on the other side.

Below are the ones I was looking at, but didn't know if I should go with a higher poundage winch considering this one broke...although it was 6 years and 600 hours later.

1,500 lb Fulton:

Overton's winches...

my boat is 2,850 lb (dry) X-5....basically a 190 with a tower.

Thank ya for any input.

It cost more, but this is the one I have, and love it.

thanks, flipper - yeah, I saw that one as well but I'm not really concerned with how it looks. heck, I should probably just call Fulton and try to get the part I need, but for $35 I can get a whole new strap and winch.
