Standard 24" for me.

While I agree with much of what saildog writes in this case I would go with the coated lifelines and just replace them every 6=8 years or so.

I have seen a small burr on an uncoated lifeline put a few huge tears in a 3-4 thousand dollar jib.

CS Johnson is where i buy mine. In addition the stantions can be place on in two manners if you have an anodized toe rail like our C&C does. Original equipment on C&C was a stantion which was intergrated and attached to the toe rails thus providing greater support than the standard backing plate most stations are installed with. Another advantage to this set up is it gives maximum width to the gunwale. www. niagara.com South Shore Yachts sells these.
