Someone who really believes in his product!
Two weeks ago I wrote a post where I confessed that Rebecca and I just weren’t strong enough. Specifically, not strong enough to raise our new tender onto the davits using the little single-speed winches that are located on the davit arms. I wrote of using a drill to “electrify” the manual winches and I spoke of a company that produces a device just for that purpose. While I didn’t mention it by name, many of you may have guessed that the product I was talking about was the Winchrite.
Unfortunately, it just so happened that during the time that I emailed Winchrite to ask some questions about their tool, the company was migrating from one web server to another and my message slipped between the cracks. We only found out about this from Rich, the owner of CruiseRO watermakers, who is a dealer for the Winchrite.
Well, the message of my post, one way or another, made it to the folks at Winchrite and Martin, the owner, was quick to email me to answer my questions. One thing I was really curious about was a new motor that I had heard rumors about. Martin confirmed that yes, they are using “a new design motor that has increased performance and cooling needed due to the weather-sealed case.” Good news.
I explained that all this was a bit late in coming though because we already had the other drill on its way to us. This is where it gets good… Martin offered to send us a FREE Winchrite to test out! How is that for someone who believes in his product? Obviously Martin knows that if we like the Winchrite, we’ll post about it and that’s cool, I am happy to share info on things that we like. I think it’s awesome that Martin is willing to take a shot like this. If you do end up contacting Winchrite or even better, purchasing from them, make sure you mention that you heard about it here!
