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 read, think, and act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest, nor I am here for free sex. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of safe off-shore passage. I am NOT afraid of dying in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school; doing the right even when no one is watching is important to me.
