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.

Finishing our major refit. Our trip to Newfoundland is off because it is too late. Hoping to go to the North Channel instead.
