Sorry to be honest, but chances are you would be dead.

So its very important to be thinking about this now. Part of your considerations should be acknowledging you would be injured in falling overboard.

Either work out how not to fall over, or, get a good halyard, winch and ladder set up. Mind you, a sky rocket up the bum may be more effective.

All the best,
