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?

Thanks,

Optimum Winch and Traveler Position for Single-Handing

If you order the Admirals type main sheet, its a continuous loop like the one on the drawing I made a while ago, then you need 6 winches.

If you order the main with purchase type boom control you only get 4 whinches.

LOL... I only have four winches on my boat... but two are mast-mounted for the halyards... and the other two are for genny sheets... The main sheet is a six-to-one block-and-tackle.

Giu— Which line breaks the boom???

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.
