Personally I think if you are using winches you aren't really sailing. What ever happened to using block and tackle to trim sails.

On the other hand we just added an electric halyard winch. It makes day sailing a breeze. Much less work, so I don't mind going sailing for shorter periods of time... Anything that means I get to have more time on the water is a good thing in my world.
