I have a 1996 C37 and had it refit by Pacific Seacraft. They installed a pad eye in the location you described and it works great. It is very accessible.

Re: Crealock 37 Jacklines

We've added two pair of padeyes in the cockpit, one just aft of the companionway, to allow hooking up before leaving the cabin, and another just aft of the pedestal, to allow hooking up at the wheel. The pedestal padeye also doubles as a wheel tie-off when hove to and as an attachment point for the Monitor control lines. We tried attaching to the cleats and to the railing while steering but the lines constantly fouled. And the low mounting position should do a better job of keeping us in the cockpit in the worst case scenario.

Re: Crealock 37 Jacklines

The solution was to simply leave tethers attached to the jackline (one port, one starboard), their ends in the cockpit.

Very straightforward and sensible. Many thanks.

Re: Crealock 37 Jacklines

We have a similar problem. The solution was to simply leave tethers attached to the jackline (one port, one starboard), their ends in the cockpit. Perhaps this means buying an additional tether or 2, but it works. In our case we have a very deep cockpit and never use them there, but short extensions would solve that problem if needed.

These are also sometimes useful:

Re: Crealock 37 Jacklines

Adding an additional padeye further aft, thus using a longer jackline would ease the awkward stretching when attaching and removing a tether when going forward. I seem to have more trouble disconnecting than connecting with the current jackline configuration using the running backstay padeye. I also keep a short jackline stretched fore and aft inside the cockpit (I added extra padeyes fore and aft in the cockpit and to the cockpit sides adjacent to the pedestal, not only for tether strong points, but to lash the helm down when necessary).

New to forum and impressed with the collective wisdom here.

Am trying to improve aft jackline anchor placement.

Attaching the jacklines to the padeye set up for the running backs is adequate, but it makes for a long stretch, reaching around the dodger and leaning farther out over coaming than ideal in heavy weather. Using main cleats aft makes it easy to clip on but could leave an overboard single-hander trailing helplessly behind/under the stern.

Factory suggested installing jackline padeye on the narrowest bit that slopes forward between the after- and side-decks. That would put the padeye about even with the pedestal -- easy to clip on while still safely seated, hopefully far enough forward to have a shot at scrambling back aboard, and also available as a hardpoint when at the helm.

Would warmly welcome any thoughts or experience.
