Default Winch adjusting

Quick question on winching and adjustments that can be made without taking another 3 points...

If you set your winch hook, and decide to move it, that is another 3 points. What if you need to adjust your winch line, but do not change the anchor point of your hook, is that add 3 points.

At time 1:12 of the video shows what I mean:

The winch line had jumped the spool, and was binding the winch, without changing the anchor point, I let some line out, reset the line on the spool, and started pulling in again.

If I were judging I would not give three more points, to me this is a normal part of using a winch. How would you score this if you were judging?

same pull. I wouldn't add 3 points. I think your good. if you have to move your mounting point then you add another 3 points. I see most people with the slow warn winches don't pull enough line and then don't winch themselves through the hard spot they cant make it through and if they have to move their winch mounting point then another 3 points is added. 10 points for a reposition

You are penalized +3 when you hook up your winch line and start spooling in. As soon as you touched your winch line again, it was a second winch penalty.

Not to be *that guy*, but does the penalty follow this exactly? Like, if I hook up, then check the course again and decide to move the anchor farther up the course, and THEN begin spooling, does it count as two penalties or one?

Once you hook it up and take your hand off it is a winch. If you decide hey, I dont like that, Im going to rehook it then its a second winch. Hooking the winch up and taking your hand off is the deciding factor.

In principal I disagree with your answer, but I do understand it. Thank you for posting it.
