Only reason I can think of.
I would accept that explanation, except that as I look at the line wrapped around the winch, the load seems to be above the winch, not below it. (perhaps a Cunningham?)

Regardless, I would hate to ever need to pull the mast. The screws holding the winch mounting plates to the mast on my boat are seized, and I imagine that they would be on this boat too.

Sorry for the tread drift.
