Re: Do you wear a life jacket?

We have one of these Swi-Tech emergency ladders which can be lowered from the water. We hang it on the rail when one person is off the boat in the water, when I singlehand, or we do some passage making.

The loop to reach up and grab from the water is adjustable so its not hanging near the water line, but you can grab it to deploy the ladder easily. Its on page 31 of the catalogue. Some neat stuff in this catalogue if you don't get it already.
