Re: Harness and Tether Recommendations?

I got a WM harness and single tether from the clearance isle at West marine a few years ago. On my 20ft boat a single truck bed anchor at the companionway allows me to reach the outboard and the mast on the single tether.

I may add a second anchor point near the mast to go forward of the mast but that will require another tether, a jack line does not make a lot of sense on a 20ft boat but I am willing to be proved wrong.

I would rather have a PFD with "D" ring than the harness, just because I tend to forget to but the harness on and have to go below to find it.
