Hood Stowaway main question
My new, old boat has a Hood Stowaway and I have a question about the locations of the unit's control unit and the winch for the outhaul. On my boat, these are on opposite sides of the cockpit. Since you need to use both of these at the same time, it seems logical that they should be together. There is another Bristol in the marina and his are both on port side and the owner says it works well like that.
I think I need to move one or the other, but am i missing a good reason for them to be separated?
