Just a point but beware your Secumar flapping about and chaffing through the halyard. A “friend” lashed mine to two eyes at the top of the mast and after three days cruising in Brittany it had gone. (I don’t think it inflated but didn’t see it go!). Its quite heavy and can get quite a flap.I normally lash it on myself with lots of turns of line. I don’t have mine on a halyard as rearming the thing with the soluble tablet would be nigh on impossible on the water so if it does go off I’ll leave it up until I can drop the mast.
