Otter,
You mean you attach the mainsheet to a belt you are wearing? The picture I visualize is you being dragged, your body resistance sheeting in the main. How does the sheet attach to the belt? With a Quick Release that will release under load I hope.

Better to balance the trim with a bit of weather helm so that she'll head up into irons, then test it out... (no don't jump over, release the helm )

Not forgetting sloculm who was never seen again and Alard Coles-Heavy Weather Sailing who admitted living to a ripe old age because once harnesses and lifejackets came on the scene in 1950s he used them!

VetMike I like discussions like this! Whenever I am entering any new situation I always examine the risks and figure a way to avoid the risk and a way to extricate myself if needs be. Then I expect the unexpected.

If you want to be the hero and look like a Barishnikov moving around your boat then be prepared to pay an exorbitant price for it.


I hear you Omatako it makes perfect sence to me , If I was worried about what it ( anything really) looked like to others I wouldnt be alive now lol
