In Topic: Winch input force?

We used  harken self-tailers for the crowders in the spawning raceways.  Worked great.  No idea exactly how much force it took to convince 100's of adult king salmon that their time was up but the guys running the crowder usually had some decent biceps.

I'm totally hooked on "Corrosion Block" and the  Volvo-Penta branded equivalent Duraplus Corrosion Shield (what I can get in town).  

In Topic: Stainless tiller bracket keeps rusting

Just because you have cleaned the surface does not mean the piece is even remotely okay to use.  This is could easily be a case of advanced stress corrosion cracking.  Stainless like this will fail without warning or much force if any at all.  You can detect crevice/stress corrosion after cleaning usually with a magnifying glass or dye penetrate.  If present the piece must be condemned, there is no reasonable repair possible.   Much has been written on the topic.
