Good to know, thanks!I always use the winch for both furling and un-furling.
I guess I was worried that if I was using a winch I wouldn't be aware if it was starting to jam and it'd be too easy to use too much force.
I did use the winch to tighten the outhaul after the desired amount of sail was out and the furling line was cleated, but while just furling or unfurling I used my hands.
The season is over for this year, but I'll probably get the same boat again next year. Maybe then I'll use the winches and save myself some work.
