Stop when you are close to the full hoist position; and EASE it the last foot.
These things are powerful. Can be run under the dodger in a blow....
Great advice about the drill. A friend of mine showed me that one. Can you be more specific about obtaining a winch bit from the sailing magazines? I haven't found one so far. Thanks very much.
