I can attest to salt water destroying my drum brakes in under 2 years and I rinse my trailer after each use and store it in a garage! If the cost isn't a factor I've read positive things about the electric marine brakes, but in my case it was just easier to get the drum assemblies for $50 each...four bolts later (each side) and a quick bleed I've got another 2 years. Took me under an hour.
