Life lines and other confusion
I have seen them loose (drooping between stantions), and tightly strung. Which is it supposed to be?
Can 1/8" SS liflines be replaced with say 1/4" polyester double braid?
I have seen them connected to the top of a pushpit/pulpit then along the stations and I have seen them connected to the bottom of the pushpit/pulpit, then go up at an angle, and then along stations. Which is preferable and why?
If double braid can be used I have a question about stretch. If it's advertized to stretch say 2%, does that mean it gets 2% longer and stays longer after loading it up a few times, or does that means it gets 2% longer when loaded and returns to it's original length when unloaded?
