It could also be that the winches may need a bit of TLC. If the internals haven't been recently CLA'd then they may make it a good deal harder to winch in than should be the case.
PS. CLA-Clean Lube Adjust... from my photog days.
BTW, what size and make are the winches, and what kind of boat are they on??? I can't think of many boats that come will all self-tailing winches, much less 10 of them. Most come with 2-6 self-tailing winches, depending on how the genny sheets, spinnaker sheets and main sheet are rigged. The ones on the mast, usually 2 winches, are usually not self-tailing.

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.
