When going from cockpit
to on deck
in a seaway on a 440 there's a time when you get the feeling your in 'no man's land'.
It's stepping out of the aft cockpit
and moving forward, my wife Vivien hung a rope
there so she had a more confident and safe handhold in lieu of something more permanent.
Well i had it on my 'winter work' list and it's complete, i did a drawing and got it fabricated some 200 miles away and posted to our island berth. It fitted nicely and works a treat.
Just an idea for you if you find there's a need to 'get a grip'!
