Re: What I learned at the Annapolis Boat Show

I don't get it! Electric halyard winch? Seems like a waste of money to me! Hoisting sail is far easier than grinding in a genoa, and you only have to do it once! The only thing I ever use the halyard winch for is tensioning!

I guess it might be different on a 50 footer, but if you are under 40' and you need a winch to hoist your mainsail, you've got some friction to deal with!
