Bent winch

Is it my imagination or is this winch bent?

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.

Re: Bent winch

Looks more like the upper jaw is adjusting to the size of the line.

You'd probably pull your sail apart before bending a winch like that.

Re: Bent winch

That makes sense now. The upper jaw floats a little to grab the line.
