Life line mystery
I am totally befuddled by this. I had a snow issue on my winter cover several weeks ago where the snow load pushed the winter cover over to one side. I had ABS "ribs" attached to the stanchions with 2 plastic cable ties on each side as the supporting structure. It wasn't pretty, but not a huge issue either,so I removed the snow (which really wasn't a lot) and took the tarp of given that it was end of snow season (so I thought) anyway. When I was leaving the boat, I noticed that the port lifelines were very very saggy by at least a couple of inches. The starboard side was normal.
I was afraid I had bent a stanchion or something but could not find any damage whatsoever and each stanchion was at the same angle and profile as its corresponding stanchion on the other side.
last weekend, I went back to the boat to do some more work and noticed the port lifelines were totally back to a normal tension. Either I was dreaming or some wierd warpage happened that self corrected.
Any possible explanations? EVerything looks very normal on the boat now!
I am not really from Toronto
