Hiking Lifelines by Hutchinson Sports. Keep your crew comfortable so they’ll hike harder.
This Melges 24 Lifeline Kit includes 4 Hutching Sports Padded Lifeline Straps (HTS203 & HTS510). The forward strap is connected using a spectra tail with an eye splice for easy attachment. The stern strap is connected to the other strap using a spectra loop, designed to go through the stanchion. On the other side is a spectra tail with an eye for easy attachment in the stern pulpit. Includes both port and starboard lifelines.
The main horizontals are stiffly padded straps are made of an abrasion resistant, UV-inhibited cover with a closed cell foam core, 7000-lb strapping, and soft webbing loop ends (the original straps had a stainless steel triangle end). The diagonal straps are 2 in webbing with metal triangles and covers over them on the ends. Don't forget that class rules require the aft lifeline be continuous. So, you cannot terminate with eye splices to the diagonal strap.
This Lifeline Kit includes 1/8 in lacing line to tension the system at the stern pulpit. Also, 3/8 in shock cord that attaches to the stern pulpit to hold the system taught when no one is hiking (aft eye - you will need 3/8 in hog rings for this).
