Re: Replacement of vinyl lifelines
Correct me if I am wrong here but I believe coated lines are OK as long as the coating is removeable.
Yeah verily to replacing them now whatever the condition, if old. Me i'd go line rather than wire but yes it is more expensive and you have to remember to replace the lashing each year. Indeed if your wire is lashed rather than rigging screwed, the lashing still should still be renewed every twelve months. (not that I, he blushingly admitted do so).
