Joel, I know there is a standard procedure for releasing that line caught on the winch, but it slips my mind right now. It has to do with using another winch to release the pressure of the caught line. Glad you are okay, line is cheap(kinda). I can't find the info right now, but I seem to remember it involving another winch to take the pressure off the override.
