Re: Scary night sail

Marking the docklines is an excellent idea.
The "better solution" is to get the owner high enough so that he can see while driving in close quarters.

How much higher does he need to be? Is it merely a few inches? Can he sit on one of the square, Type IV floatation cushions?

If the reefing systems are inoperable, don't be afraid to issue a "no-go" if the wind is up.
