I've got autopilot on my beloved nauticat - wish I could smudge some of that love onto my wife's thick hide, but that's another story. As most here already know, I have been singlehanding - solo in fact - for the last few times sailing, and don't know how I'd get by without Otto.

I do some daring things while sailing alone, like leaving the helm for minutes to go down below - as evidenced in that recently posted video showing off the cabins below. I did peer out the ports and hatches every few seconds though . . . for whatever that's worth.

But, one thing I always do, is wear an inflatable pfd with an integrated harness. The tether is always clipped on wherever and whenever I am on deck. This lonely sailor may be daring and stubborn, but he's not stupid.
