Brent - you really would help your case if you'd put up photos, etc. of this stuff you've done. You always say how superior and less-expensive your inventions are compared to the industry standard stuff, but when asked to post a photo of the application, like Bob asked above, you almost never do it from what I've seen across the forums. Why?

Now, I have seen pics of your blocks, your windlass, etc. - but that's about it. I'm honestly interested in how you're doing these things - especially if they really are better and cheaper.

It would certainly give your arguments a bit more credence if you could show instead of just tell. Just sayin'.
