Re: What I learned at the Annapolis Boat Show
17. Electric winches, while really awesome, just seem wrong! Are you really sailing when you just have to push a button to trim the sails?
Yeah that's what I thought too! But recently my Brother in Law installed them on his 1940's vintage 45' yacht, because he is getting older, and so are his buddies. (but not his wife, she is still young as ever
Considering he has done 36 Sydney-Hobarts, and the America's Cup, I think we can cut him some slack and let him have his electric winches!
