Re: Heading to the Keys!

Brian,
Really like your blog and envy the future adventures you guys will have. Just one note of caution (didn't want to post comment on blog where your mom might see it) - in the photo of BJ on the mast in bosun's chair, I noticed the chair was attached to the main halyard only with the shackle (and shackle had easy to release pin) and didn't see any safety line. Not a good practice to trust your life to a shackle - use a bowline knot through the bosun chair D-rings and use the spinnaker halyard (I know it's currently in use as jib halyard) as a safety line. Fifty-five foot fall could leave a mark or two......
