Does anyone know of a regulation or guidance document regarding the replacement of emergency towing gear? It’s not often that I cannot find something that exists without too much trouble. I certainly cannot find this.
With certain arrangements, such as rope messengers, wires, etc…this does not last forever and its generally expensive to replace. It may look well kept after 6-7 years if you you used canvas/cover or something of that nature to limit UV exposure for messengers. But, even with that, after a 6 year time frame, replacement may be warranted.
