Jack, when you're single-handed and tacking, that's kind of hard to do .

Hardening overrides are mostly due to incorrect mounting of the winch, as mentioned by SJB, and having too many coils on when pulling fast on a sheet, as you mentioned.

Still, would be good to know if anyone has had experience either way (easing or hardening) with these particular winches.
