I’ve been working through different ideas/ways to make/acquire stern rails. I didn’t have much luck finding someone to fabricate them for me so in the end I decided to use galvanized pipe.Here are some pics of the dry fit. The pipe has a 7/8 inch diameter. The lines are similar to para cord and have a 4000 pound max weight limit. The vertical pieces extend down through the seat tops 9" and will be through bolted to the inside of the transom in the coffin berths. I will most likely use two lines per side.

I like the economy of it and I think it will do the job.
Two things to consider: One, ingress and egress. Most boats have a gate for the lifelines at the cockpit for this reason. You don't want to go ass over teakettle stepping onto the boat from the dock. Second, I think for a modicum of safety the straps will have to be pretty tight. People grab onto them to steady themselves. I'm not sure what this would do to the engineering of the pipe in the back which doesn't seem to be supported in the fore-and-aft direction.
Just things to ponder.

Hi Tony! Thanks for the input. There is approximately 9" of pipe that goes down thru the hole in the seat tops. The plan is to thru-bolt (2 per side) against the transom from inside. I should think it'd be rather solid

Yes, that sounds like it will do and is in fact more robust than most installations of stanchions.

Wings? Does she have wings?

Tony, the docks in SC run high. Even on the j30 it's more of a step over then step up. Unless there is a really low dock in Boogie's woods, I think 90% of the climbing in will be on to the cabin top with step down to seat to cockpit. That said, I don't disagree with the general statement that a gat would be nice. There was a lot of "budget planning" until usage bears out a final plan for Boogie.

I tried to say something but God thought I was wrong and filled my mouth with saltwater. I kept my pie hole shut after that.

Does this boat have shrouds? I kind of doubt it but if so, that's where you'd embark.

Not the way he and Karl rig with the modified junk. If I were to guess, he will wind up with snap fittings on the transom that will let him drop the lifelines there and make that one solid handrail. That's my guess.
