Power winch wiring hook up - how to ??

I have a power winch to haul my boat on to the trailer. How would you do the wiring for this. The wire gauge is pretty big like maybe 10 gauge. Do I need to run it the length of the car to the battery directly?

I'm interested in the answer too.
Can it be rigged to plug into the 12V accessory outlet in the cargo area?
