Thats nothing, do you know how many winch handles we loose in a race (snailboat) we break the floating ones so Stainless is all that will stand up to 100s of lbs of preasure. No carbon in stainless means no magnet. We have 20 on board and loose five in a race across lake MI and 10 in the Chicago to Mack...just a cost of business and fun. Lines pick them out of the winch and running around and changing for sails always is a problem. We have 10 winches and 20 sails.

I think it's probably 45 or 50. I just lucked out, Tom at First Mate Marine has a big magnet and left it on the front porch for me.

Thanks, God!

Them things are heavy too!! I can see you on the mottom feeling for it, finding it, and not having the bouyancy to bring it to the surface!!! If you drop it, you might not find it again.... if you hold on to it, you might drown..... what a dilema!!!!
