Even if some charter boats doesn't have jacklines, if you have your own harness and tethers you can allways fix the tether to a strong point when reefing at the mast, or to a cleat at the bow while changing a sail.
Mine is allways in my sailing bag with foul weather gear, gloves, boots and inflatable life vest in any boat I sail.
I think that the harness is personal safety equipment and should go with the crew member and not with the boat.
