Thanks for the welcome, Dave! Always a pleasure to see you. Been out and about traversing the Keys but back in Port in Boot Key Harbor. Should be here throughout hurricane season. Hopefully I'll get over here to Seaknots more often now! Big Hugs!

"I can't imagine anything in the winch top that would bend. Other than the electric drive and a disengagement pin that activates when the winch handle is inserted the winch is the same as the others. It sounds like the collar is jammed due to…"
Took care of the lint build up on the fridge condensers and the leaky shower sump this weekend. Then went to the electric cabin top winch to disassemble, clean and lube only to find the top cap wouldn't unscrew. It should have by light tapping with a screwdriver but to no avail.So I stepped it up a notch with a brass drift and screwdriver and again, no go.
