How would I use the winch to get the boat down the slope in a controlled way?

Lowering the unit: It can be done using the friction of the drum, with the winch not running. We recommend using the 85 mm (3-3/8'') large drum (PCA-1100), as its larger diameter provides more friction, so you can use only 2 wraps and control the load efficiently. For added safety, the self-locking pulley (PCA-1272) can be used but it requires that someone pulls on the rope attached to the locking cam to allow going down. The PCH1000 is also a great winch for lifting and lowering.
