Genoa sheet question

When I bought my Valiant 37 the genoa sheets were 3/4", to big for the Barient 28 ST winch. How does one decide on the size of sheet to use. How would I find the recommended sheet size for the winch?

Help needed with a plotting question

When told to take a bearing on the light of a lighted buoy do you use the open circle at the base of the buoy or the open circle that (I think) represents the light on the top of the buoy?
