New trailer winch needed/Load rating???

I am looking to buy a new winch for my boat trailer which hauls a 91 Prostar 190. Can't decide on whether to get a 1,500 lb. or 2,000 lb. winch. I am guessing the boat loaded with fuel weighs about 3,000 lbs. I had read elsewhere to take this gross weight and divide that by 2 or 2.5 to get the appropriate winch rating. Seems my boat is borderline with either the 1,500 to 2,000 lb. winch. What are your thoughts or what are you using for a similar boat setup?
