Yeah that breaker and probably the cable ends are toast. Time to replace. If you're seeing that in one location it would probably be a good idea to go through clean and do a "nut and bolt" on both...

I just got lucky finding it. I was getting ready to replace the actuator as I couldn't think or anything else that could make all the brakes drag. I opened the tongue to see how bad the job was going...

Check the flexible brake line at the back of the actuator to see if it's kinked from moving the swing tongue. I had something similar happen after storage. I had folded the tongue back for winter...

That is incredible for $2800. I paid a shop $750 for seam repairs on a 97 ProStar 190 and that was after three quotes, they were the cheapest. The estimate I got for the entire interior was going to...

So are you saying that Viper will do the interior for $5K - $6K or that all in including shipping he'd be all in for the $5K - $6K? What is shipping to get a boat from Nor Cal to TN?
