Default Best electric winch?

My winch broke pulling the boat onto the trailer yesterday. I'm thinking I want to go with an electric now. What would be the best one to use. Boat is a 02 275 whaler conquest. Thanks

Today winches are pretty affordable, almost all are offered with wireless remote. I would buy the one I could attach with the least hassle. I darn sure wouldn't be shopping for one that has 'marine' printed on it, especially since you're in Utah.
I have different makes on my off road machines/Jeeps here in SD, none are more than a 3 years old, but never an issue
I like this one and it's under $300

Synthetic 50' rope 4500 lb rated line pull Weighs 21 lbs Aluminum hawse fairlead Wired rocker switch can be under-dash mounted or handlebar mounted. Wireless remote control 12 V, 1.7 hp motor 3.0" x 6.6" (76 x 168mm) mounting bolt pattern

I use a Warn 4,200 lb car trailer winch. It has a narrow spool and I double line it for my boat. It’s 7,000 lbs wet and I don’t dunk the trailer
