It was a combination of Cindy being the lightest, never gone up before, and me not trusting the lines. The only safety I had was the jib pole line which doesn't go all the way up to the top, so that was out of the question. I decided to keep the two stronger/heavier guys on deck to work the lines. I could just see the headlines in my mind, "woman falls to death, firefighter trained for rescue decides not to use safety line".
