tube lifeline update

Ive just cut the old droopy line off omy tubes as it was just about to snap anyway and im thinking is there any way of updating the look with new rope that doesn't involve replacing the eyelets on the tubes.

I currently have droopy lifelines like these. (its not my boat but very similar)

but was thinking of using a fatter rope and making it straight rather than droopy.

but the problem I have is that I have stainless d rings for mounts.

any ideas

No reason why you cant fit a new rope in the same manner but set it straight through the loops rather than slack usualy use a self splicing rope or 3 strand and splice the two ends and pass the rope between the strands on the intermediate rings

Still can use straight... Really the D rings should be rotated but that will involve removing them..
