Re: Reflective Piping on Dinghy Cover
Ann, sorry for the lag. As to shedding mud, I kind of doubt that without a wash down system it would be ideal. Especially if it's that thick, clingy stuff. But I'd imagine that with just a light rinsing going on as the chain comes in, it'd likely work well enough to see by flashlight, when you got to a mark.
You might have to stop the hauling in temporarily in order to count the strands, but it'd definitely pick up enough glint to let you know that you were at a mark.
You could always buy 1m or 1' & test it out to see what you think, & go from there.
