According to Sailing World, on day one of Quantum Key West 2016 Race Week a sailboat suffered “a starboard lifeline failure that sent 3 crew members overboard.” Under the watchful eye of the events’ rescue team, the mostly junior crew took 10 minutes to recover its members.
Steve Howard, owner of Sailboat Lifelines and Riggings, shares that lifelines are one of the most overlooked safety features of a sailboat. Always routinely inspect your lifelines before a major event for rust, cracking and breakage. If you discover problems, please contact us for our sailboat lifelines replacement service.

DIY Hand Crimp sailboat lifelines are popular and cheaper than machine swage lifelines. Should you trust your life to DIY sailboat lifelines?
DIY hand crimping can’t duplicate the strength of machine swage lifelines and rigging. Plus hand crimping leaves unsightly crimping marks which destroy the beauty of your sailboat fasteners and ends.
