We had to replace the windex atop the 45-foot-high mast of our 1979 30' Hunter. The bosun's chair was easy to understand and easy to use. It's a three-person job, though, including the person in the chair, because you really should have two halyards on the chair and two people winching.

works okay and is comfortable, but metal halyard eyes would be easier to put the halyard shackle on and add additional safety lines. If your halyard shackle is small you may be out of luck. Additional snaps on left to move tool bag over would be helpful to lefties. Would recommend only if a metal eyelet model could not be found.

              I had older bosun's chair that needed replacing. I purchased this with goal of finding a chair that was solid and offered more stability and security while in use. This is a very solid product and has made rigging work less stressful.

                My husband and I bought this bosun chair so that I could replace our faulty radar scanner. I found it to be very comfortable and felt quite secure while aloft. There is a detacable pocket for tools and such. I would buy this again.

                  Having been to the top of many masts in several different kinds of climbing apparati, this WM brand bosuns chair is the best. It is obviously very well made, good fit adjustments and has duplicate safety features so you feel secure and comfortable working aloft. The backrest and seat are comfortable enough to be able to pay attention to what you're working on, and not have to readjust yourself while up in the air. Good location of attachment points for tools and pockets.

                    The bosun chair is large and comfortable. Unlike my previous West Marine chair which basically hung you by your sack.

                          We used this product as a lightweight hunting tree stand. Worked great. Felt secure. My only issue was the metal waist buckle. It would often pivot sideways or the strap would get twisted in it. I would much rather see a standard climbing harness buckle that allowed you to tighten at will, and then double back for safety. It worked though...
