Hiking Lifelines by Hutchinson Sports. Keep your crew comfortable so they’ll hike harder.
This Melges 24 Spectra Lifeline Kit includes 2 Hutching Sports Padded Lifeline Straps (HTS203), all line, shock cord, lacing line and lifelines pre spliced. Just pop out the sailmaker thimble in order to thread the aft end of the live line through the aft stanchion and down through the deck eye/block. Reinsert the thimble once led back to the aft stanchion and lace with the 1/8 in line to the stanchion. 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).
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).
