How do you think these servos would do with a drum winch in a Marblehead Class 50/800?

I'm afraid to put anything other than an RMG 280 in any of my personal boats.. but I'm in the process of putting several old M's on the water for an incredibly minimal investment. This winch looks like it might be a good option?


The old go-to of the Futaba S5801 had 108.0 oz-in of torque at 6v.... while this servo has 153.0 oz-in.
It's quite a bit slower than the S5801, but is it as un-bearably slow as the Hitec?

Thats the trouble with living in Hawaii, with time time difference of at least 3 hours by the time I see something good on site it's been sold. Oh well I will take our fantastic weather over getting a good deal anyday. A good deal is only once and awhile why our weather is all the time.

Won't work for a Marblehead. This sail servo is good for up to 1M sailboat. First servo sale fell through, still one available at this bargain price of $20.
