Re: Mizzen Balooner falls
Hi JP,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Very good advice.
When the riggers did work on our boat, they asked to remove the mizzen
sail. They ran alonger line and used the internal halyard rather than
the external one. It took them less than 10 minutes to do this. This
prevented the scenio you discribe. They said they avoid external
halyards at all cost. After talkingg to them about people they have
known to be hurt, I can't blame them for taking a little extra time to
be safe. Also, they snapped on with a safety line as they worked -
something I see very few people do.
Thanks for sharing. You might have saved someone from being badly hurt.
