Staying on board is a top priority. We are installing jacklines running from the boom gallows at the rear of the cockpit to the bowsprit. We made these using 1 inch tubular military webbing with a length of 1/8th inch Amsteel Blue running through it. The webbing has a strength of 19 kilonewtons or 4271 pounds. This is backed up by the 2500 pound strength of the Amsteel. The ends are multiply stitched with Tenora Gore-Tex thread which is 100% UV resistant. We will hook our Wichard ORC3 tethers to the jacklines.
