Re: Protective coatings for splices and stitching
Dyneema covers? Certainly a very valid option, perhaps the best option in many cases. I've done this before.
* Overkill for many. Those pictures are halyard porn and my boat would faint.
* Doesn't apply to webbing, such as jacklines, tethers and exposed clew stitching.

* Often too large to fit into blocks, unless the blocks have been over sized (which is certainly possible if the line has been downsized).
