English term or phrase: power windlasses
Contexto:
Because of the way that three-strand nylon line is twisted during manufacturing, it has a tendency to kink or hockle, particularly when used with mechanical winches. And, once the line becomes wet and is subsequently dried, it can become difficult to handle, resisting flaking or coiling.

Por causa do modo em que a linha de náilon de três fios é torcido durante a fabricação, ela tem tendência a enroscar ou (hockle?), especialmente quando utilizada com sarilhos mecânicos. E, uma vez que a linha fica molhada, sendo subseqüentemente seca, ela pode se tornar difícil de manipular, resistindo à descamação ou enroscamento.

Não encontrei o termo 'hockle' em nenhum dicionário, embora exista no Google. O que significa?
