Ahhh. I don't think fjording is a common concern... but if it is, a lil bit of riding the brakes after getting back in the dry should cure that.

I think the main reason discs replaced drums is their superior ability to dissipate heat... which, as a flatlander who is very light on the brakes (111,000 miles on my 17 year old F150 and it still has the OEM factory shoes and pads) is pretty much not an issue for the likes of me (not a Marine).
