pipes in deck tops for ropes.

Re: pipes in deck tops for ropes.
we have found that the when using the pipes the ropes come out below the timber comings on the case and can then run all the way back below the comings to cleats either mounted at the very back of the case or under the thwart. this keeps the case clear of ropes!! one less thing to trip over plus less pulleys that can break jam or tangle. it also leavs the top of the case free to run a vang or cunno
good luck
