    Whittier retrieving.

    When they open two launch lanes to retrieving why not open the two that the wind blows IN TO? I had an inexperenced boater bang into my boat on sunday mid day.

    How many fiberglass boat guys dont have a dingy?

    Should I put a plate under my windlass?

    Best windlass for the money?

    Just bought a 26' boat. No windlass on it currently. What would you all put on it for reliability and toughness. Just a swtich up front or one by the helm?
