Re: Ditch bag

Something else to think about. How many crew do you have? How strong are they? Work out the procedure that you will follow in the event you have to abandon and who does what? It is possible to have a ditch bag which is too heavy. Also assume that you will not be loading the ditch bag from your boat to the raft. Think about having a security line on it that you can attach to one of the people.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
