Re: Installing a new winch

I just finished installing all the same hardware on my Pearson 26. I made backing plates but didn't use them. I think I will go back and add them though. When I tightened the bolts and nuts (used fender wahshers) I could hear the fiberglass making that sound..you know...that crackling sound. I think backing plates would be a plus.
