Re: Jackline system

Jon, I think yours is probably the best advise and approach.

It seems though, that I am most vulnerable moving from the cockpit to the shrouds/mast. Using a lanyard long enough to cover the distance between the cockpit anchor and the mast anchor-point concerns me.
Just so you understand, my main motivation is the 40 deg water that await me if I screw up.
I probably am over thinking. I come from the climbing world where, except for a "daring" few, the idea is to stay connected at all times.
Also I like the idea of finding ways to use all the neat climbing gear i already have.
Joel H.
