Sailing the north coast of the Dominican Republic and the Mona Passage we hooked a set of lines connected to mooring balls. This was a couple miles off shore.

I quickly hung out over the stern and got the line with the help of another hand. I was hooked in with jack line and one hand clinched to a lifeline. I was able to cut the line free releasing the line of mooring balls dragging.

The important thing here...

A good sailing knife from sailnet, $75. Being able to cut a line free in 8 foot seas PRICELESS.
