No. I would still have one hand on the main and the other on the tiller but I would have the main secured to my waist ethier by a knot or attached to a harness with a snap shackle. This would probably make it easier to right the boat but without the risk of it blowing away from me due to the masthead float . Any flawed thinking here ?

Thanks. Is it OK to tie off to the main ? This would be if I was using the masthead float and not in protected waters but still quick swim to land (1/4 mile.


NO one hand on de main one on de tiller. Stay with the boat its bigger than you head in the millions of gallons your floating on and u want to live right?

Thanks Driftwood. You nailed me with this song last time when I rigged the Snipe as a trimaran ! LOL !

That one has a lot of flotation. They are not hard to right even turtled with the board handing below it.

.

#1 tie the board to the boat securely when sailing. If it turtles it will go to bottom fast.

.

#2 Never let non sailors drive. Dont ask WHY.

.

#3 Get a good bailing bucket.

.

#4 Dont let it happen.

.

#5 wear a PDF

.

#6Now Just
