Have a Discovery Bay Power Hauler  2.3HP, 90:1 gear box worm drive.  Our pots are offshore pots and exceed 60 pounds which don't move in the tidal swings.  We went to the power hauler because it's easy to get the pot higher than the side of the boat.  Then we only have to swing it in and lower it.  Works the same way in reverse putting it out.  The Power Hauler is very strong and has a rating up to 250 pounds.  We have had it for three seasons with no issues and it saves our backs.  It's very easy to hook up and take off the boat leaving only the bracket along the side/floor base.

I have the same but in 1.8hp.

I have the Ace puller.  works great for crab pots.  It has some trouble pulling heavy shrimp pots, the rope slips in the sheave(even with multiple rubber strips in the sheave).  If I had to do it again I might try the Power Hauler.

I enjoyed pulling them by hand and never bought one,but I did use a Honda puller on a friends boat and it was awesome..

I call BS on this one.  Maybe for crab.  lol  For shrimp, no way.  Dropped 4 pots and after pulling the first SOB up from 350' I was ready to leave the other 3 on the bottom.  Luckily some guy came buy and pulled the other 3 for me with his pot puller.  I was one happy guy after that.

Dad and I pulled them by hand for two years. Not a ton of fun, but doable. We do have the ace puller now and like it a lot.

I went this direction..........the actual brand of davit I used and the same exact winch (picture is from someone else's winch).  Had a special adapter made like the one shown to attach to the davit.

I pulled 4 pots several times a day for 14 years and just built my own puller from an eBay wheel chair motor.  I'll post a video if it works.

My homebrew puller worked great, just need to tweak the hands free part a bit.  It pulls faster than commercially available and I have less than half the cost into it.  I could hook it to 18 or 24V and really get those pots moving.

I just went and bought the Scott Line Puller.  I think they had them at Costco for $368.

For what it is worth, Ace Line Hauler comp  any has an amazing warranty.  I have had two motors replaced by them with no questions asked. I've now got a Safety Hauler which works well, thankfully I did not have to pay for it though....  It does require a much different mounting (more complicated)system than the Ace.

The best warranty is one you don't need to use.

Dad just bought a Thunderjet Alexis with partial hard top and offshore mounted O/B and kicker, we plan on getting it in the salt once or twice a year *hopefully* and I'd like to put a pot puller on it.  It's got electric Scotty's on each rear corner, would the scotty pot puller be ideal to slide in the current DR mounts and plug in since it wouldn't be used very often?

Or better to put a davit off the hard top?

Go Scotty. Super easy with that setup.
