I agree that the floor plan is only showing an outline, not details, but the outline is the one part that might be fairly accurate. The significance to consider here is that a worm drive such as in the boat winches is symmetrical while a spur gear drive such as in the cargo winch is not. A counterpoint is that the gear case in the Electrician photo appears to be at the center of the drum shaft. Is this just a matter of the controller box being at one side of the motor instead of being on top? While that fits it however doesn't look as logical as the top mount in the photos.
