You regularly single-hand a Jeanneau 57? Wow! Why wouldn't you invite some friends to join you (or make some new ones) -- it's not like they would be underfoot

Baltic; with single crotch strap. The thigh ones are a pain as they get hooked up on everything. The Baltic ones tend to dig in the back of your neck, so looking at Spinlock as a Christmas present to myself.

I prefer non-automatic having had the things go off whilst working on the foredeck in heavy weather. Another point, it is just about impossible to get into a liferaft, from the water, with a fully inflated lifejacket, you have to let it down a bit.
