In order to answer this, you would need to find the circumference of the windlass. This would represent the distance of one rotation. When you know the distance of one rotation, you would then multiply it by eight for all eight Kranks. This is knowing each crank is a complete turn. Here is the formula C= pi times the diameter. So, 3.14 x 7 is 18.84 inches for 1 crank. 18.84 inches times 8 equals 150.72 inches. This is an approximation because pi is an approximation.
