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.
Great idea Brent. I've been wondering what to do with the rest of that huge roll of seat belt material I bought to make a drogue:-)
