Re: Crealock 37 Jacklines

Adding an additional padeye further aft, thus using a longer jackline would ease the awkward stretching when attaching and removing a tether when going forward. I seem to have more trouble disconnecting than connecting with the current jackline configuration using the running backstay padeye. I also keep a short jackline stretched fore and aft inside the cockpit (I added extra padeyes fore and aft in the cockpit and to the cockpit sides adjacent to the pedestal, not only for tether strong points, but to lash the helm down when necessary).
