setups are great for solo sailing.
do these stats quoted and printed have anything to say about falling between your boat and your dinghy
when slobbering flambungendly drunk???
there have been more drunks as floaters in sd bay than there have been reported mob in sd bay of recent time.(give it 3 yrs)
and there are the drunks who fall overboard while sailing with newbies untrained in the fine art of catching the boat's owner...
so. how does one effectively save ones self in a mob situation when sailing solo.
figure this out nd mebbe we can cure SOME OF the problems.
we can talk a lot--but do these problems ever cure??? is the safety
factor going to change?
will folks stop drinking and boating
will folks stop drinking before they fall overboard??
will we find fewer souls afloat under their dinghies in the morning after a party??
do ALL these folks actually cruise
will all the solo sailors keep their tethers on to pee over the rail??
will all solo sailors keep their mob equipment
working so it can be used by the next person to discover the floating boat ??
what do you folks recommend for solo sailors to retrieve themselves when their tether is waay too long and drowning happens before the overboard sailor can even think of using his knife to cut the tether he cannot reach in his overboard situation??
and the overloaded small boats on holidays......
i know what i would do--what would YOU do???
the consequences of falling overboard at sea are death. simple.
