I have one for $75.00
With the trailer you have you should be able to drive your boat on it.With little cranking at all.

Mine came with a manual Fulton and it works great. You should only have to snug it up if the boat is loaded correctly.

If you can't crank it all the way up, back down a little more and finish cranking. The elec ones don't hold up well in the salt.
