question Mk V: Stern Rail foam cushion (Chivas)

Hi everyone, this forum has been great in the past so I'll throw a question out there. I have a Mk V. Directly above the helmsmen's perch, above the transom, is a 3ft life line connecting the stern rails. It has a foam cover approx 1 1/2" diameter that needs replacing. Anyone found a replacement for it? Pool noodles are too big, at least the ones I have come across.
Cheers,
Steve,

Steve, that sounds like wheel steering and too much resting against that foam covered line. Perhaps there are two possibilities....convert to tiller steering and that perch becomes redundant, or buy a piece of rubber hosing from  Crappy Tire?
Good luck

Search the West Marine site for "lifeline cover". That will give you names for several options. Your local chandlery can probably order one for you.
