    Done to death. Do a search on boat trailer, floater bar, winch, etc. There are lots more.

    Click on the link below.

    To floater bar........or not.

    VW, From the looks of your trailor you are going to have a hard time doing a winch! The lower guide on the front is what would hold a winch. Where the bow eye is in location it is so far foward that I don't see room for a winch! Just my .02 WT

    It can be done with a little work you will have to remove the dark colored mount on the front and add a mount like the one under the keel and add a winch!

    yea its definately not the greatest starting point. thats what i was shooting for i chopped a little off of that black mount just to get an idea and im considering mounting a plate on top of that just further forward a little and adding a gusset of tubing on the foward side. i have some 1/8th inch plate to bolt the winch to but im wondering if it will be thick enough.

    Default Another thought

    you could also weld a plate on the front of your upright and run a enclosed roller up top (has link so cable can not jump off roller) and that will pull straight like what you have now... assuming you have a cable style or intend to.
    Everything electrical has smoke in it.... and it's not done till you let the smoke out!
