Re: Heavy Weather video shows Wet Foredeck Work

Hey you! Photographer! Climb the mast there so we can get a better shot of the foredeck! And you, new guy, get me a cup of coffee. Don't spill it!

Re: Heavy Weather video shows Wet Foredeck Work

I think i won't be sharing this video with my Admiral, but it is an eyeopener for those of that haven't been in this kind of weather.....yet. So I appreciate it and I'll be making a few upgrades to keep us both on the boat. A para anchor for heaving to is already on the list, repairing and resecuring the stanchions and life lines just got added.

Re: Heavy Weather video shows Wet Foredeck Work

IMO most tethers on harnesses come too long for cruising too.
