Disappointed with product by Steven - Fairhope, AlabamaJanuary 28, 2012

The following is a copy of the email I sent iboats after receiving and installing the Seasense winch that I sent more than three weeks ago, and received no follow up from iboats in response: "Dear iboats, I received my order, 948576 for a boat trailer winch. I have installed the winch on my trailer, but I am not satisfied with the quality of the product because of the following problems: 1) The hand brake did not install as the diagram showed, instead of lying parallel to the winch it sits at an angle pushing against the gear change latch. 2) I had to drill two holes in my trailer (a very common brand) to make this "universal" winch bolt on. 3) The spring loaded lock on the hook was so long it could not close on my boat's eye. I had to use a Dremel tool to grind 6mm off the lock so it would clear the eye. My boat is not large (19'), the hook lock should have been made to easily close over this sized eye. 4) The hook lock and the "clicker" mechanism on the gear appear to be made from plain steel and are very thin. I paid extra for a coated winch to resist the salt water environment and the parts that will rust to pieces fastest are not coated or stainless. That doesn't make sense. 5) The bolts supplied to attach the winch to the trailer are not stainless, or even galvanized. Once again, I paid extra for a coated winch to resist the salt water and critical parts, bolts in this case, are not suitable/match the description of the product. I used the stainless bolts that held my old winch instead. I am very disappointed with the quality of this product it does not reflect what I've come to expect from iboats' products." Sincerely, Steve ******
