Re: Mounting containers to lifelines

This video shows the set up that we have used when delivering Turicum back to Vancouver after the Vic Maui race. Pressure treated 2 X 4's take the strain.

But it is a great place to start.

Re: Help me teach my wife navigation

My navigation courses are 8 classes of 3 hours each. The last hour is time to complete the assignments. I have taught classes as large as 22 - that was a bit much.

Re: Anyone wear a PLB?

I have a PLB that I use when I am within 150 miles (GMDSS area 2).

I think the AIS system is a better choice as the boat, off of which you just fell is close by. They are more expensive.
