Re: Crealock 37 Jacklines

We have a similar problem. The solution was to simply leave tethers attached to the jackline (one port, one starboard), their ends in the cockpit. Perhaps this means buying an additional tether or 2, but it works. In our case we have a very deep cockpit and never use them there, but short extensions would solve that problem if needed.

These are also sometimes useful:
