@mlydon That's my backup plan, but it's just a lot more work
that I'm hoping to avoid. I'd much rather spend 20 minutes dropping in new winches than spend a couple of days filling holes, drilling new ones, epoxying those to protect the balsa, and building new backing plates
. There's cost creep - if I go through that effort I'll start to convince myself I might as well spring for self-tailing.
