Check out Stock Drive Products which sell a HUGE variety of gears, pulleys, belts, shafts, etc, etc, etc, etc by
mail order and will sell small quantities.  They carry almost EVERYTHING you will ever need for your power system.
The prices are not unreasonable.  they will have worm gears.

Check out their website at:

Well will try this again.  Seems my post went off to never never land.  Maybe it was too long winded.
Puffin, hope you got the info you were looking for.  Built a winch under the deck from an old gear reduction unit from an old christmas ornament.  Ran the tow line thru the deck over the deck winch drum to make it look like it was working. It is a free wheeling drum.  Lots of tow line. Works fine on the bench.  Sea trials in the spring.  Controled by transmitter elivator control via servo and reversal switch.

Tried posting two more pics one at a time but get an message back that they don't pass security checks.  Guess I was lucky to get the one pic thru.
