Re: Crealock 37 Jacklines

We've added two pair of padeyes in the cockpit, one just aft of the companionway, to allow hooking up before leaving the cabin, and another just aft of the pedestal, to allow hooking up at the wheel. The pedestal padeye also doubles as a wheel tie-off when hove to and as an attachment point for the Monitor control lines. We tried attaching to the cleats and to the railing while steering but the lines constantly fouled. And the low mounting position should do a better job of keeping us in the cockpit in the worst case scenario.
