"The wave came on board and flooded the area, knocking the captain off his feet and down the breezeway. ... I caught him before he was washed out to sea and got him to his feet."

According to both Rickett and Vogt, even after these incidents it wasn't mandatory to don life-jackets or harnesses in that area.
No matter what the size of the vessel you are cruising on, observe good seamanship and safety practices!

In 1986 we went cruising for a few years. After 20 years and 50+ countries and several oceans, we are STILL "cruising for a few years".

I think I have said this before here. My harness is my friend. It actually pulled me back onto the boat after being pushed off by my main who had a mind of it's own. I cannot imagine orders not given to wear a harness when the decks are awash. JeanneP....you said it best.....CRIMINAL
