Re: Single-handed tips and tricks

Hell you fall over and your tether is too long you drown unless you can cut free damn fast.

Re: Single-handed tips and tricks

I really don't like the design wave that puts furling drums below deck or hides lines brought aft under covered runs. Don't see the sense of it on a mom and pop boat.

Re: Single-handed tips and tricks

+1 on double tether. Should only use that and always be tethered if it's snotty. At the mast may use the short one clipped to a halyard above the clutch or to the mast pulpit. Be a bear to get a...

Re: Single-handed tips and tricks

boogie you're on a 36' boat sailing in areas where the wind may blow a bit. I'm on a 46' boat commonly sailing at night and in open waters. I think our view reflects our usage and who we are. For me...
