Re: Ever been injured on your boat? Just happened to me.

I use gloves even when sailing my 14 foot dinghy. Saves you from rope burn and those nasty little splinters. And gives a lot better grip. Got whacked a couple of times by a boom when wind suddenly changed (happens all the time on inland lakes) - usually when I was busy with something else and not paying attention. Hurt my back pulling on a stuck anchor. Got many sore muscles hanging out of my dinghy in a lot of wind for a long time. Usual stuff. Thankfully, nothing serious... knock on wood.
