why do you need primary and secondary winches
I have been looking at different boats and noticed some boats have four winches and some have six. The four-winch setup usually has two on the coach and two mid cockpit. The six winch setup adds one winch on either side of the wheel. Can someone please explain to me what each configuration is used for? I may be ordering a Grand Soleil 37 and this option is offered. Are the extra winches by the wheel used to trim the main when the traveler is mounted behind the wheel?
