Re: Pole hole in boat's bum?

PS: On the tethers & PFD's thing. Ever find yourself on deck dealing with an emergency, half dressed at 3am, in a gale, or both? Meaning, sans safety gear. It's quite common. Ergo the need for a Plan B. With the Original Plan (before Plan A) being, to train as if you have zero safety equipment, including lifelines.

Particularly as any & all of them, give people the illusion of safety. And can lead people to operating in much more dangerous circumstances than they're aware of.

Surprisingly little available on IOR on a google search.. I know I have a graphic at home with a drawing of the pertinent IOR measurement points somewhere, but it's not on the web as far as I can see...
Not to be a wise ass (semi-pun intended). Sometimes Google's "self tuning" search proclivity is very limiting. AKA it depends on what you commonly look up from a particular computer. So 2 people, 2 computers, 2 search habits = many grossly differing search results.

A noble attitude: walk as if you had no crutches.

Any piece of equipment may fail at any time, also the safety / security / rescue gear.

When in doubt, stay inboard ;-)
