Is using the rail permitted on 52 hour trips aboard the Big E? If so, what are the considerations of ettiquette with regard to using the rail if and when you are without harness, and being taken around the boat, having to move with a big fish? Thanks.

Agree with Pope.

If tuna sounded and going underneath the boat, I will point my rod tip down and get it as close to the water as possible and loosing the drag. I donno if this technique is right or wrong but it have works for me in many occasions. JMO
