Mine is secured with a snap shackle. Maybe I could simply fit a long release lanyard that reaches near the water level. Something to check on tomorrow after I clean the fuel filter
sad to here,
A very basic saftey ladder, while sailing s/h,
one peace of 8' x 2'' or so, 3 strand rope
splice a loop at each end of the rope
, (for foot holes)
make one simple grannied knot
with the rope around the pushpit deck
conection on the back corner of the boat,
one loop hangs halfway down the side, with the other loop just in the water.
I fell off my boat once, and had a hand getting back on board,
coulden't have managed it buy myself
