Have you given any consideration to a worm gear drive?
Dutton-Lainson lists several conventional 'brake' style hand winches on
their site but they also offer several worm gear styles.
Description: "2000 lb Worm Gear Winch with 5/8 inch hex drive. Comes
with mating handle that can be removed easily without tools. Also allows
the winch to be operated with a power drill hooked directly to the drive
Specs and Model Comparison (WG2000 in middle of list):

I'm impressed that their products carry a warranty; are made in America;
they offer specs and they actually list repair parts.
