The only reason to have life lines is, if you are taking small children out for a pleasure sail. They get in the way of crew movement and hiking.

If and when you remove the life lines and pulpits. Do a careful job of filling the holes, and check for leaks ever so often.

I removed the four stanchions and lifelines....after the boat comes out on 9/17 I will remove front and rear pulpits....I don't know if theres a market for these but they will be for sale...the former owner just spent $300 have new lifelines installed....
