I heard this call come over the VHF while we were fishing on Noyes Island. The captain sounded truly terrified as he relayed the details of the injury to the Coast Guard. This was obviously a deck wench injury. Hydraulics have absolutely no sympathy! However, NIOSH has sponsored a safeguard known as the “Autostop,” which offers an instant access to a quick stop for the deck wench.
