We use type 316 stainless steel 5/32 in wire with a 7/32 in vinyl coating to make our upper life lines. The bow pulpit end has a toggle jaw with a 1/4 in pin. The other has a threaded gate eye. This allows you to remove the eye and run the life line through your stanchions during installation. The eye is laced to the stern pulpit with any strong 1/8 in line.
J24 Class rules state that ﾓWhen lifelines are secured by lanyards, the lanyards shall be of synthetic rope with an exposed length of not more that 100mm in (3.94 in). So, don't make your lacing too long. Please provide us the length of your existing life lines from the bearing surface of the eye to the bearing surface of the pin in the toggle jaw.
