Our First World Problems Living On A Boat

written by Terysa July 24, 2020

Living on a boat is all about boat work and maintenance and in this week’s episode we do exactly that. Climbing the mast, replacing the anemometer, doing a rig check, repairing the sprayhood…. it’s all part of boat life! Oh, and we have some *major* first world problems that urgently need to be addressed….

I just saw the video of you going up the mast in France to do maintenance. You complain about the harness. Perhaps you can work with a parachute harness/container manufacturer to design a comfortable one and sell it. I made thousands of skydives and the new harness/containers are very comfortable. All the new ones have split saddles so there is no crunching of the nads. They are infinitely adjustable for men and women. There really wouldn’t have to be a lot of R&D as about the only thing you will need to design is the attachment point(s).

Hey Guys, I’ve been watching your wonderful videos for a little while now, excellent job. I am a professional yacht rigger, which means I spend quite a bit of time up masts. I haven’t use a Bosun’s chair in over 30 years, and neither do any other riggers that I know. Find yourselves a good arborists harness, they’re not inexpensive, but they’re much safer and more comfortable than a chair. A good one will fit like a glove, and I’ve been know to be up a mast for half a day, several days in a row. Several of the best models are made in Europe, so it shouldn’t be to hard to find one you like with a search.
Cheers, stay healthy, keep up the great video/podcast work.
