Re: Safety netting for kids

Our old I-28 has a single lifeline and an aluminum toe rail with regularly spaced openings. After having a failure I replaced the coated ss wire with 1/4" Amsteel. Any reason I shouldn't simply "thread / weave" directly into the life line a smaller diameter Amsteel that would connect to the toe rail the with a tight enough crossing pattern to keep "stuff" from heading over the side?

Warning: personal responsibility required.

We used tethers and no PFD. Honest, when the temperature hits 95F plus and the wind dies, if PFDs are used on small children it would be far kinder to stay home. Asking a small child, who has less heat tolerance than an adult, to wear an insulated vest (no inflatables for small ones) is impractical and potencial unsafe.

Certainly an adult was in close attendance at all times. Illegal? Don't care.

(We used PFDs in the dingy and kayaks)
