it doesn't look very big. what did they use it for. I still ice chunks floating around in there too.
There were a number of very beautiful and artistic hippy shacks on floats (float homes) in this area up until the early 80's as I recall. The winch was likely used with the three upright posts for dewatering boats for painting and repairs.
It looks like an antique just waiting to be discovered, well, except for the fact you already discovered it!
I always like to photograph abandon stuffs! There's a beauty about it, and you can tell a story about it. Good find Paul!
