New Lifeline Cover

16 June 2012
It's Saturday and I took the scooter to the boat early in the morning to get some more work done. The plastic covering the lifelines that go along the outside of the deck is starting to crack. The cable underneath appears to be sound [though it broke at a fitting in sailing trials], so its really just a cosmetic thing. I often lean back against the lifelines while sailing or hanging out in the cockpit and as part of the refit, I ordered new covers for that area. They come as a length of PVC tubing with a layer of foam over that and then a sunbrella cover wrapping. I originally ordered the cockpit lifeline covers stock but they were too long, so I had to return those and order them custom size. Several weeks later, the new ones arrived. 52.5 inches long. They fit perfectly with just the connecting hardware sticking out. I took a test lean and they feel nice and stable against the back. Boker Tov is starting to look more and more spruced up.
