Re: What sailing knife do you use?
Don't carry a knife on a regular basis. But I have available a Leatherman tool and if I am attending something that needs fixing that is likely to be with me. But if I need to cut something thre is a box cutter with a new blade available but if it is a serious job like a rope around the prop the bread knife with it's serrated edge is the weapon of choice.
Da** fishpots with transparent coke bottle floats set sub surface.
BUT there has been a deal of talk recently about clipping on when out of the cockpit. I rarely bother with my safety harness and when I do I am usually clipped on in such a way as to be held on the boat if I fell. However the stories about people being recovered drowned because they were dragged along has made me think that perhaps I should have a cutaway knife of the type the parachutists use tied to the harness.
