I used these to cover all lifelines around my boat. I have a larger boat w/ the double lifelines. I used a fairly large diameter cover which not only gives you something substantial to hold onto underway, but dramatically dresses up the boat. They aren't particularly cheap, but considering the improvement, it is an extremely economical way to class up the boat, plus protect your cables. -very satisfied
Over more years then I care to remember these shroud covers are a must have! And they are certainly a lot less expensive then replacing your favorite jib or having it patched which creates a "Hard Spot."
