Re: Harness and Tether Recommendations?

Agree with Jon. Think the mast is a place you are likely to want both hands to work with. Therefore, even with lines brought aft I have mast pulpits and clip on to them. Leaning against them allows you to brace and use both hands. Also put a small step on them allowing my 4'10" wife the ability to get to the headboard. For me it's something to grab onto climbing on the house. After thinking about issues people have raised may re run the jacklines through them. In past boats have run tether around mast and clipped back on me.
