    E29 - Lifelines -- Move gate? Add gate?

    I just pulled off my rusty lifelines and am going to replace them sooner or later. As soon as they were off, I noticed that it seems it is a heck of a lot better getting on and off the boat from the middle of the boat instead of from the cockpit. It also seems it would be a lot better for...

    Respecting lifelines and stanchions ... a rant

    You come in to the dock, under control, with no problems ... Some helpful person on the dock decides to help and grabs the boat by one of the boat handles, known as stanchions, and puts their full weight into pushing it, or almost as bad, starts pulling a lifeline as hard as he can...

    E32-2: double lifelines in the cockpit

    To comply with ocean racing rules I need to add a set of lifelines around the cockpit of my E-32. I plan on putting removable netting panels around the pushpit, but anything in the areas of the combings will get in the way of my ability to work the sheet winches. Does anyone have a...

    Replacement Lifelines

    Hello to all, After hearing of someone falling onto a stainless lifeline and cracking a rib, I'm giving thought to replacing my 1X19 stainless lifelines with three strand nylon. It has good strength 1,000lbs breaking, but has a stretch of 15%. I know that a line with stretch is not the most...

The information I have so far says that uncoated is now required in offshore races due to concern that the PVC coated lifelines are more prone to...

    Replacing Lifelines DIY--Stainless or Synthetic? [Master Thread]

    I don't claim to be terribly handy, but I just got a quote from the local rigging shop of $670 to replace my aging lifelines (original equipment) on my 1986 Ericson 30+ and I'm wondering whether I should be attempting to do this work myself. My thought is that if I can measure this job...

    Lifelines on E27

    Do you remember when we discussed this subject? Attached are pictures of the three ways I have seen this done. One is a little clip that holds the lifeline to the shroud. I had not seen a clip like this one before, it was quite simple and refined. You can barely make it out in the...
