No...just the extension piece that was used to lengthen the wire. The lines are not shackled directly to the eye hole on the bow rail, but rather a line is doubled back through the shackle (dressed and neatened) and the life line shackle is connected to that. It give me about 4-5" of play in the line, and it is still drum tight!!!
