Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Not quite under the $100 requirement, but I had to replace my lifelines, and when I got the quotes..l well I wasn't sure I wanted not to die that badly.

So $125 worth of amsteel blue line, and a few hours of learning how to splice it, and I had new lifelines for my Olson 30. And they are now certified by ORC, and US Sailing to be safe for offshore racing. The same as wire, but much more comfortable.

I can't figure out how to post pics from my iPad, but I'll put some up tomorrow.
