Staying behind the wheel
We were about 20 miles east of Martha Vineyard Sun Night during some unsettled weather in a Pearson 365 ketch.
During my watch I found that it took a great deal of effort to just stay behind the wheel. The boat was lurching and jerking a lot, more like a double or triple snap. Steering was a workout but the real effort was just staying in position.
Has anyone heard of some kind of harness to keep one in place.
If all you had to do was steer it would be much less tiring.
