dongreerps is on a distinguished road
The multiple reports from ladies with long long hair raise a point of needed education. The surgical literature contains multiple reports of female workers getting long hair caught in power equipment. (Usually lathes or drill presses) The hair gets wrapped up in the shaft, and rips the scalp off the head. I can envisiom the same thing happening in an uncontrolled tack or jibe with hair getting tangled up in sheets flying off the winch, etc. We all know not to get fingers caught under lines on winches. Please also think about not getting long hair caught in lines.
