Re: What's your biggest bonehead move sailing?

Not my biggest, but up there...I bought a pair of bronze 2-speed Barient winches, made winch mounts to fit them and my old single speed winches before I made sure I could reach the places the bolts went...but that wasn't the bonehead move...when pulling into a slip a line got wrapped around one of these unbolted mounts and pulled it over board. Second try with a diver found them and I have already stripped them down in prep for complete cleaning. BTW I can get the bolts to fit, as soon as I can find someone smaller and more flexible than myself.
