Re: Lashing lifelines

What is this and how do I use it?

This may be a silly question but I found a few of these on my boat when I bought it and was wondering how to use them? They had a small piece of rope with a screw driven into it down it's length from...

Re: Refinishing loop rails

Wow, looks sharp. What are you using down below? My teak is all bare and I need to do something with it this summer. I know some people like it natural, but it's not for me.

Re: Refinishing loop rails

I did a final hand sand with 180 grit. These are going into storage for now. Next is refinishing the hatch covers. I will varnish once all my wood work is ready to be finished. Stay tuned for more.
