I just noticed the same thing.
You have to be careful not to get a wrap caught under another wrap or your in trouble.

Actually... our O'day 22 has the original winches... not sure what kind they are though. You wrap counter-clockwise. Weird.

Alex... What is this "rope" stuff? We only have line on our boat... will that work too?

I'd heard Australian dating practices were primitive, but if you have to lash them down, they probably aren't your type of wench.
