Sailing On a Short Leash
West Marine tether fits the bill with elastic and Wichard hardware.
Noted West Coast sailor Skip Allan-fresh from "falling" off the deck of Wildflower in our harness test (December 2006)-spent several days offshore again, this time tangling with sailing safety tethers. The results were shocking. Several major retailers continue to sell safety tethers with jackline snap hooks that might disengage themselves, and one of the two child safety tethers we tested broke-twice.
