I also just remembered, took me 4 yrs to put jack lines on my boat, and buy a safety tether! Most of us, generally speaking, are probably sailing in less than 15-20 knots of wind, generally speaking, reasonably protected waters. Some of the safety items are not always needed, like jack line, reefs depending upon you view of them being a safety or needed item for what ever reason.....
By the way PG, welcome to the water rats nest! of BFS! As you can tell, there is more than one way to skin a cat, tell a story, help you with what ails you. Hopefully those of us with the how too, vs the scolding, are helping, even the scolding ones are probably help full is some way shape or form. Not sure that SD is paid like Simon is to be negative tho!
where locally were you in less than 600' of water, much less only 400' of water?
Do you want a direct email for the fellow that is running the NW solo website? PM me.
