Winch.

Object used to launch boats and bring them ashore. When returning to land, fishermen would pull the boats on the beach manually and with the help of animals and winches. For small boats the levers were used. The boat was moved along the beach with greased wooden planks, and the same technique was used to launch the boat in the water.
