Re: psc 34 jackline configuration
iMHO using anything other than a jack line and bowline your asking for trouble. Stitching wears and breaks carabiners fail and rust. If you trust the webbing and your knot tying skills , why would you add something that could break? Probably doesnít look as cool and tidy but will keep your butt on the boat! I know the harness has that as well but it doesnít sit out in the sun , hopefully.
Hereís what strange In That article, his idea of separate jacklines at the mast when he has mast pulpits right there? I would hope they were strong enough to clip onto. Also Iím sure your using double line on your harness? It makes life a lot easier.
Safe sailing and hope none of us ever have to test these theories.
