Re: Harness and Tether Recommendations?

up here and when offshore the harness is much more important in MHO. You will die of hypothermia before you drown. If single with the vane or Autopilot set ( which it will be when you go on deck) may be preferable to go to sleep from hypothermia after the boat sail's away. Harness is more important for sailor's.
Can get groin set up for virtually all combo units from what I've seen.

Have four folding D rigs in cockpit. Have webbing between them. can hook in before leaving companionway. everyone hooks in at night regardless of weather and going forward except in light air.
safety first
