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?
Well...... I remember what I said long ago. What kind of moron needs a TV remote control? And 35 years later, I asked the car salesman why would anyone needs a butt warmer. Now no one in my family wants to drive a car without a butt warmer.
Trust me, if you have sailed on a boat with electric winches, you would not want to do without it. Main halyard electric winch is a must. Hey call me sissy.
I am just sayin'
I am old school. Integrity is to do the right thing even when no one is watching.
