This kit allows you to extend the lifelines to attach to your stern
railing. The Vinyl coated stainless steel lifelines have solid stainless
gate hooks for easy boarding from docks. Stern Rails and cabin top rails were not standard as new from the factory, but in order to have lifelines you would need both. Unfortunately, both the M19 stern rail and cabin top rails are no longer available.
This package does require a "Nicopress" swaging tool
and a cable cutter for
installation. Most marine supply stores loan or rent professional tools, or you
can buy your own do-it-yourself tool from
