winch size

I put one of those winchers on the main halyard winch on my Norsea 27 and was actually surprised at how well it worked. It did not truly self tail but the amount of tension needed to tail the line was much less with the last turn forced against the wincher. Since that winch was hard to tail the wincher made the job much easier. Never tried them for primaries.
