Want to replace my 20yo plastic coated SS wire lifelines
before they break.... I happen to have a heap of the right sized wire (316 SS 1 x 19) left over from a recent house renovation
Before I do that, there are about 3 stanchions that are bent to varying degrees either from the spin brace(guy) or bad boat handling when coming alongside (h'mmm - previous owners not me.....).
Any ideas on an easy way to straighten without having to buy new ones? Or should I take them to a workshop to be heated & straightend or maybe cut & sleeved and a new bit welded on.
The bends are really not that bad and there are no hard points - just look a bit untidy.
They are nice custom tapered ones so I want to keep the look.
