Re: Cleating the Sheets...

The first statement, without reading the sentence that follows, could be misleading.
Actually, it's contradictory. I knew it when I wrote it.

Obviously I agree with you but for me, knowing that there is that much load on the other side of the winch is scary. While I know that I should have 4-5 wraps on the winch, reality is sometimes different and it's possible to have only 1 wrap. Then the load is getting big. I've had crew do it and I was either too lazy (or polite) to point it out or didn't notice.
