After multiple trips into San Francisco Bays chilly waters ... (capsizing a Laser ... dangling from the bow pulpit of the Cal 28 as we docked) .. I can attest that we are searching for a easier method of reboarding ...
presently adding a rope ladder .. to both port and starboard sides .. permanently affixed ..
looking at various mechanical assists ..
thank you for posting .. I will be watching this thread with much interest as we normally sail as a couple .. so far only in relatively calm .. but as the year progresses .. and experience with it .. will want to test our skill .. safely
