Can someone set me straight on this fuse setup that is on my Floe boat lift?

Basically I've never seen two fuses bridged like this (they bridge the plate that connects to the positive battery terminal and the plate that has the power wire going up to the winch box). On one of the little fuse boxes it is labeled as 40A, so I am assuming that there are TWO 40 amp fuses that bridge the connection between the battery terminal and the supplying line to the winch. However, if you have two 40A fuses setup like this, is the total fuse protection 80A then?

Again I am guessing, but it seems reasonable that the amp draw from a winch is closer to 80A, rather than the labeled 40A; but I just wanted to double check before I setup my two relays (hence the question I am trying to answer - do I need 80A relays or 40A relays to setup my reversible switch?)

Here's a pic to help show what I'm trying to explain:
