Spud pole winch

Spud poles have been employed to good effect on working ships for decades. In recent years, the advantages of spud poles have increasingly been felt in inland shipping too. The demand for spud poles for both new built ships as well as existing ships is high. There are also various types of spud pole winches with freewheel capability for a so-called "ebb and flow" system. For more information see lifting winches and/or wire anchor winches.

See below for a few examples.
