Single handing

Anyone who single hands and doesn''t take every step possible to avoid a MOB situation is crazy. I harness up and my spring lines would allow me to just have my knees off the deck should I slip. It wouldn''t be hard to wiggle back on if hips are still on the deck. I am looking at the self inflatable PFD with harness built in. I am still on the hard for now so the purchace can wait. I am thinking that that type of PFD would solve alot of my worries. Even those strage laws the Canadian Goverment has come up with about required PFD for anyone on deck or in the cockpit.
