I googled it. I found a picture. See the guy standing up there. The lifelines are
right about at his butt. I measured from the floor to my butt and added two inches
because I'm shorter than him so it tells me the lifelines are 36" high.

I've sailed an Athena 38 and if I remember correctly the lifelines
were a standard 24" high.

The guy standing "there" in the photo is probably 10' from the
lifelines. That coupled with the fact the shot was taken down low
gives anyone the wrong perspective for estimating lifeline height.

You need some glasses, dude! That's a big boat there. 24 inches is only
two feet. Those life lines would look a lot closer to the deck if they were
only two feet high. They're three feet high or I'm a hunchback of Notre Dame.... :-)
Three feet. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

Cheers,
Ellen

I don't need glasses. I've sailed the boat. If they still
manufactured that hull I'd tell you to just go to fountaine-pajot's
website and check the specs.
