Crealock 37 Jacklines
New to forum and impressed with the collective wisdom here.
Am trying to improve aft jackline anchor placement.
Attaching the jacklines to the padeye set up for the running backs is adequate, but it makes for a long stretch, reaching around the dodger and leaning farther out over coaming than ideal in heavy weather. Using main cleats aft makes it easy to clip on but could leave an overboard single-hander trailing helplessly behind/under the stern.
Factory suggested installing jackline padeye on the narrowest bit that slopes forward between the after- and side-decks. That would put the padeye about even with the pedestal -- easy to clip on while still safely seated, hopefully far enough forward to have a shot at scrambling back aboard, and also available as a hardpoint when at the helm.
Would warmly welcome any thoughts or experience.
