Jack lines and tethers
Preparing for offshore sailing. After some experience and a lot of reading, I am curious about what experienced offshore sailors actually do. The more I read, the more problems seem to come up. Even using tethers there have been drownings after being dragged beside or behind boat, equipment failures, etc.
Question for the experienced?
1. Do you use jack lines and when?
2. How are they rigged to provide true safety?
