Re: Bent Stanchions - Solution
I've also got a bent stanchion... but my lifelines are also VERY suspect. I've been putting off on both (because of the work involved removing them).
Glad to see I'm not alone in wanting an inexpensive solution. If my lifelines weren't also suspect, I'd consider your approach.
However, I think I'll wait until I can afford to replace the both together. I'll be looking at adding a gate as well, but my boat also only has 6 total stanchions.
