Thank you Jack. If the cover is around 100 lbs then I know the winch can handle it. I know that Harbour Fraught over rates their stuff; or often does; I hear their electric impact wrench is actually pretty good. The winch is rated at 2500 lbs; which is a small winch, so even if the actually rated capacity was half that I would still be OK.

Let's double that; let's say the cover weights 200 lbs; I don't think the cable in the winch is going to break at 200 lbs or the 2X10 and I don't think the bolts will shear or would pull through the wood. I guess I will find out. I may put some braces, ceiling to floor, on either side; I will go out and get some today.
