Toe-rail or foot-rail? English Mar 252010 Whatever you call it, it’s an important part of the looks of the boat, so it’s nice to see it go on! 4 Responses to “Toe-rail or foot-rail?” Andres says: 2010-03-25 at 22:36 It will not be perforated? Looks quite thick – how much does it weigh all together? Jesper says: 2010-03-26 at 7:03 There are enough gaps in the railing that perforation is not needed. Actually the material is quite thin at the base, but it has a thick bulb at the top. The total weight of the whole railing is about 10 kg. We did some test on the strength of a perforated railing, but a big guy (guess who!) jumping on it was able to bend it a little. Which didn’t feel safe. For attaching low-load things I will use these pad-eyes: http://www.wichard.com/images/prestations/A-WICHARD-16614-0003.jpg Mark says: 2010-03-26 at 12:03 I am mister Guess Who! Nice to meet you! :) There is also given a good term for this kind of tests : “animal test”. White mouses are Jesper, me, etc… Andres says: 2010-03-27 at 11:53 10kg is nothing :-) It just seemed from the pic that it didn’t have the “bulb” on the top.
