Could use some help making sailing with spi alone more secure.
Standing in trapeze aft on the tramp sometimes with 1 foot on the hull I would like to have a footstrap. When the wind suddenly eases the aft foot is likely to be flushed away due to poor bouyancy.
On the other hand with risk of pitchpoling I would like to have "chicken" line as well. When sailing on F18 we use line with hook. Just attach to trapeze ring and your position is rock solid. Of course 2 man crew is more easy !
Hobie 16 of course is more tricky and less forgiving. But that is probably why we love her...
Any recommendations ? Please shoot !

Happy sailing from The Netherlands!
