Hmmm. E/H has a whole other bunch of problems, primarily keeping the battery in good condition while the boat sits on the side of the house. All the electric stuff is, well, electric, and doesn't play nice with water.
If I ever rebuild my trailer, it will be to scrap the leaf springs and drum brakes, install a torsion axle, and go with a surge activated disk system. Of course all that is probably around $2K, so I'm not really in any rush.
