Re: Life Lines? West marine and crimp?
It is a very high strength rope. It works great, and is approved for racing (ISAF CAT 0 compliant). Instead of fittings you use eye splices and lashings, and is both safer and more comfortable than wire.
I was wondering if you could explain the nature of this menace that wire creates. It's just that the same wire has been installed on my boat for 30 years, and has been keeping people safe for all that time.
