simple but safe

way to use a harness and safety strap/line? Or do you just clip to nearest strong point? I'm thinking flat webbing is safer underfoot.

Denise, we clip to strong points in the cockpit but use the flat, nylon on deck whenever we are offshore. Good stuff.

Cam,
What do you recommend for rigging lifeline on the dock while aiding friends? (g)

Denise,
I use nylon webbing rigged outside of the stays. Short tether then inside the stays. So far the dog is the only one to use it.

I like using 1/4" spectra cord inside polyester webbing for jacklines. It's overkill for most people, but it works quite well. The polyester webbing prevents the 1/4" cord from rolling underfoot, and protects it from sunlight and abrasion. The 1/4" spectra provides plenty of strength for the jacklines. On my boat they run from the aft end of the bow pulpit to the stern cleats on either side of the main hull.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

We use 2 jacklines of heavy duty 1" high visibility yellow nylon webbing with a carabiner that we attach to port and starboard cleats at the bow. The aft end is looped and has been tack stitched by our sailmaker - we use cord to lash the loop to cleats on the rails, about six feet from the stern. I looped the ends after a couple of years use and finding there was too much stretch in the nylon when wet. The lashing allows me to tighten as necessary. There is a wichard folding pad eye at the bridge deck so you can tether in prior to leaving the companionway and two pad eyes on either side of the wheel to clip on while at the helm. Hope this is of some help.

I've been using a pair of nylon webbing jacklines, port/starboard, from the bow cleats to the mid cleat forward of the steps to aft deck - royal blue color, came with the boat. As was said, while solo-sailing and offshore, I always clip my tether from the integrated inflatable pfd/harness to cockpit cleats/shrouds or the jacklines.

cool.. but where how do attach said jacklines to boat? More holes?
and suppose one does go MOB? (should be POB, personoverboard) lol! how do you get back onboard? Seems like the stern is the only easy way but.. stand on rudder.. get ladder down.. keep line clear of prop... all while fighting the wake and speed...yikes!! I really don't ever wanna go overboard! I know wouldn't be able to pull myself up the sides.
