Whether sailing solo or fully crewed, operating on the foredeck in most conditions requires extra attention and safety precautions. They are essential gear for keeping crew aboard the boat. They must be extremely strong, both along their length and at the attachment points, yet allow maximum freedom of movement for crewmembers harnessed and tethered to them. To ensure your jacklines remain strong, they should be replaced after every two years cumulative outdoor exposure.
Plastimo Jacklines are made of polyester webbing that doesn't roll underfoot like round rope jacklines do. And they're gentle on your boat, too. Mount your jackline attachment points through the deck, with backing plates, as far inboard as possible. Width: 1.2" (30mm). Breaking strength: 4,400lb (2000DaN). Both ends are finished with 1.5" (38mm) flat loops sewn in. Hardware not included. White or yellow, in 5 lengths. Sold in pairs. Tether not included.
