I just received these from Amazon and they seem perfect. I thought I would share. No more towels or clothes in the water! Also, stainless steel.

They look nice, but I was always taught to put the clothes pins under the lifelines horizontally if and when we were allowed to adorn the vessel with flapping laundry. 😎⛵

I should have mentioned that we are on a power cat and hang clothes on the flybridge. No lifelines, just rails, which is the reason these are perfect.

Somewhere out there
Years ago we met a South African couple that had invented "doubly Pegs" the new revolution is cloth pegs for sail boats. They were planning to cruise from SA and sell these to the other cruisers and have a great cruising kitty. The next best idea is "they pushed onto the life lines from either side". We flew home form SA with a bunch to test for them. In the anchorage wind they ALL just blew off. At that time it was just the wooden pegs that would rust in the middle and the rust would get onto your clothes.
