The lifelines on my Northcraft are sleeved in black 1/2" water hose.

That's exactly what I'm about to use on mine.
Murph06 has some new genuine Avon ones for sale.
Drop him a PM http://rib.net/forum/member.php?u=6282

Do you actually need anything on the rope? Or is it to maintain the original appearance?

I used 6 mm rope and woven threaded hose pipe (unfortunately in green). Having the hose on makes it much easier to get back into the boat than rope alone.
