Re: Harness and Tether Recommendations?
I prefer car seat belt for tethers, as it is far more comfortable in my bunk than a rope, and to enable me to attach myself from inside, before opening the hatch, I can leave one attached to the jackline and close the hatch on it , unlike rope. With a tether short enough to stop you from reaching the water, you could never attach from inside before opening the hatch.
