    Hi,
    I am currently restoring a 90's capri 14.2 I recently bought, and near the cockpit there are two holes on each side of the boat near the cockpit. I looked at a diagram of the boat fully rigged on this page, and there appears to a support for the hiking straps at this point. I was wondering if anyone knows what that rope is called and/or what type of material it is so I can replace it. Also, I was wondering if there are caps or if there is some sort of rubber cap surrounding these ropes.

    Thanks! Do you by any chance know what the length of the cord is? :)

    No but the bungee cord stretches pretty good so you want to have enough tension to hold the hiking straps up.
