'Coffee Grinders"

One of the most amazing thing about these boats (as they were sailed originally) is that they had NO standing backstay! A heavy air jibe must have been terrifying. And, for the most part, no winches, as we know them today. Everything was block and tackle. This is a picture from the original 'Yankee'. (A tie was not 'optional' when you were in charge of the running backstays)
They did have THESE devices. Since I'm far from being an expert on this subject, I have no idea what they were called or how they worked. It's possible that they were some kind of clutch, or maybe connected to something lead below.
As a person that has been clubbed and flayed using one of the old wire reel type halyard winches, I wouldn't want to be anywhere near one of THESE things!

Alex böjde sig och viskade instruktioner till Sonya: "Jag vill ha dig på knäna framför mig." Sedan rätade han ut och knälade vid hennes sida med axeln riktad mot soffan. Sonya steg upp på fyra och svängde. Hon satte en fot på vardera sidan av Alexs ben och ryggade in i honom tills hon kände att hans spets pressade in i hennes baksida smutsigaliam.com. Alex centrerade sin axel på Sonyas korsrygg på toppen av hennes spricka. Han drog ut höfterna och gled sin fulla längd mot henne och pressade bollarna in i hennes heta centrum. Sonya skiftade höfterna och tappade ner på armbågarna, hennes ansikte vilade på en kudde. Hon välvde ryggen och tryckte mot Alexs kuk, kände att hans axel böjde uppåt och glider mellan hennes våta läppar. Alex höll Sonyas höfter och gled sin längd mellan hennes ben, sköt hennes puffiga läppar isär och krusade hans hårdhet över hennes klit. Sonya klagade och började gunga hennes höfter och slipade hennes klitoris längs hans skaft thefreeadultcam.com. Hon ökade hastigheten och Alex kände att hon klamrade sig, benmusklerna strammade. Hon släppte ut ett gällande frigörande i kudden och skakade sedan, hennes runda kinder studsade mot Alexs knä.
