Going to start trappin' out...which harness would you vets recommend for the 14?

Dogbone handles, or "can't miss" handles?

I was hiked out for most of Saturday's race, had to travel out a bit to keep the boat flat. I'm around 155 lbs and probably could have driven the boat harder if I had been trapped out.

I like the can't miss handle. Easier to hook into without looking down.

Call up and talk to JAWS at Mariner's in Dallas. As long as you get something with a full spreader bar you're OK.
I like a full harness for the back support, but I'm an old guy.

I like dogbones because I can raise my trap position up or down if the wave height changes, without fiddling with the stops.
Stainless steel dogbones are hard on teeth, if you forget they're there...don't ask me how I know

Mariner is top notch, I have done lots of biz with them though the mail.

I am looking forward to meeting some of those folks at mid-Americas in a few short weeks.
