Hi Olivier,

It is good to hear of a top skipper who has been through the same selection as myself. The 7980 needs 7.4V from Li Po's and I am not yet ready to upgrade to that level of kit. Thank you for adding to this thread.

Jim 123,

You will find that the two older Hi tec winches are about the same weight as the RMG, but the 7980 is comparible with a standard servo. It is being used with a large diameter (4") wheel available from Sails Etc. which allows it to be installed in a narrow hull like a Widget II or narrower. The 7980 plus wheel should be about $180.

Good Luck

Ralph
