Never got very high off the CAT stroke, settled some working with engine failures. I was unable to sustain airspeed or altitude and ejected around 50 ft above seal level. Ejection sequence worked flawlessly – a very short ride with only one swing in the chute and hit the water.  It was at night with no moon, fair seas with no wind – all the good stuff. Thanks M-B… I owe you for 41 years.
