Yeah - but do you really want to be the poor schlubs with no pfds out on the "crewtapult"? Dog, what would you tell these fellows regarding safety?
PS - Is this the poor man's canting keel?
I'm not a dog, but I have a nice one! Safety? I'd tell these folks absolutely nothing. They're big boys and girls that are sailing very old boats that have done it this was long before we were born. I think they can take care of themselves. I'd happily sit out there with them w/o a pfd. The water's warm as is the weather.
