Re: Mounting new, to me, winches...

"So, one is mounted. Used the butyl tape " Kevin I think its going to take more than butyl tape to hold the winches down. Maybe bolts? ;)

Re: Trailer brake fire!

Are there some sort of check valves in the trailer brake system? Wouldn't an expanding air bubble (due to heat) apply pressure to all the calipers instead of just the one that burnt?

Re: Sailboat hits Power Line in Cocoa, Florida!

"Power companies generally don't like to electrocute the rate-payers"

Re: Sailboat hits Power Line in Cocoa, Florida!

Those are my old sailing waters. They must have been out of the channel.
