Ahh, that explains it. I would lead them aft and use the coaming mounted winch. If you place the blocks low enough on the stanchions, and they are properly reinforced, the loads shouldn't be too problematic. The only caveat I have is what do you do if something damages the stanchions, like a breaking wave. Leading the lines further in-board is probably safer and less likely to damage them. Without seeing photos of the setup, I can't give you more specific advice. Just food for thought.

Any questions, feel free to contact me.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
