Lol stupid iPad autocorrect, should have been minutes.



Itgoshen,

Those rust rings through the coating are where the wire underneath have rusted so bad the rust is weeping out of the covering. That is an absolute indicator of impending failure. Generally they look fine, but those few spots condem the entire system.

Taking style over substance priorities to sea can get you killed. There was time when any lifelines at all were considered ugly. Killed a lot of sailors. Wisdom eventually began to sink thru the ivory.
I can think of nothing uglier than seeing any boat sailing away without me, while I tread water, admiring her "Yachtie" but inadequate lifelines.

I could never see beauty in dainty, fragile, yachtieness, only foolishness.

I'm no longer foolish enough to buy such naive priorities.
