Great backrest cushions for your lifeline cables. $2 each!!!

Great solution for backrest cushion that slide on to your lifelines. If you hate having your cockpit seat backrest cable (lifeline) cut into your back, but don't want to spend big bucks on "lifeline Cushions"- just use kid's swimming noodles available at most discount stores for a couple of bucks each. What? Something for my sailboat that works great and is under $4 for two??? Yep.

and if you have a decent sewing machine and a little bit of Sunbrella you can do this:



Think I may have about $15 in these including the PVC pipe core (had some laying around), the pool noodles, the Sunbrella and the cinch clips on the ends.

LOL, That drop board is Hutchin's stock.  90% of the time I really like it.  However, I'm currently in the middle of the haulout and refit from Hades and I'm refinishing the teak which requires much stripping, scraping and sanding around that computer routed logo.  No love right now.:)
