Jacklines

I'd not use stanchons for the jacklines. On my boat, the cleats are postioned well for jackline use. If your cleats won't work, then install U-bolts (i.e. padeyes) as jackdale suggested.

Some other safety items I carry: handheld VHF stored in the microwave (in case of lightning strike), Lifesling, heaving line, and assorted hacksaws to cut away standing rig in the event of a rig failure. All of our PFDs have a whistle attached and are marked with reflective tape front and back. At night, each crew carries a chemlite (light stick).

On my wish list is a MOB pole/life buoy combination that will also trigger the MOB function on the chartplotter.
