Well, I like the plastic winch handles primarily because they do less damage to the gel-coat when someone whacks it. And I can verify that the non floating winch handles do not float, and in fact seems to me they sink faster than a cellphone. I don't know how difficult it would be to retrieve a dropped floating winch handle but have thought about it. Locking winch handles certainly are nice and seem to stay on the boat longer. I often wonder how much stuff is on the bottom.
