Bavaria 46, 2006 Cruiser Poly (Polykandros)
Using cheap 2.5mm black line to replace the expensive leather wheel covers that had lasted just two years. Using a 1/2 hitch, over and over , the knot itself created a spiral grip around the entire wheel. Its tight and very grippy. Possibly not as pleasant to hold as leather but with sailing gloves gives a very firm feel. The process was quite time consuming , about a day per wheel. Therapeutic really :-)
