I changed out my lower lifelines to bare SS a couple years ago.
Yes, I got complaints from the crew, but I put soft covers over the
lines where they hike out. The bare wire will last longer and are much
easier to inspect than the covered wire. I am not sure what the
offshore racing council (ORC) regs think of the covered wire these days,
they may prohibit it entirely. I will be racing in ORC Cat I, so I will
probably go to all bare wire. The boat looks good with bare wire and
you won't have any covered up problems, like rust and such.
