reminds me of the time when 2 spotters, both highly experienced offroaders, one standing behind my gypsy and the other in the front, shouted out contradicting instructions!

I went straight and was none the worse for it! Spotters can scream and shout all they want, but ultimately the driver takes the call.

It should also be understood that if the driver controlling the winch cannot see both hands of the assistant, the winch should not be activated.

Suggested signals:
