I thought I would share the upgrades we made to the aft lifelines of Alembic. Our goal was to add a mounting place for solar panels as well as to increase safety and security. First we added a stanchion just aft of the mizzen shrouds. We then added 1" SS tube top and mid rails using 1" SS tube. We connected these rails to the stern pulpit using hinged connectors. This extended section of solid rail provides a place to mount solar panels. We then replaced the wire lifelines with Dyneema line. Finally, we added a section of 1" SS tube along the cockpit exit. The Dyneema line extends through the center of this tubing section for added security. If anyone has questions after looking at the photos post a reply and I will provide additional information.
