Re: Tether overload protection
Thanks for all of the thoughtful responses.
I bought this harness because I was possibly going to be on a TAG boat with only a few days' notice. The chandlery was completely out of 3-point tethers due to the recent boat show, so I resorted to the consignment store. I didn't end up on the TAG boat, but now I have this tether which seems to have good hardware, is not faded, but doesn't have the stretch left in the longer leg. However, I couldn't find any broken threads on it. I'm happy to replace the entire webbing if that is the right course to take. The CPM class will go out the Golden Gate to the Farallons, but not if the winds exceed 30 knots. I am going to purchase a new tether online as well. But in the meantime, I am trying to assess this one.
I appreciate the link to the $100 tether. Looks good! I'll probably buy it.
I'll post pics as soon as I can. (Off to work right now.)
