Looking at details and how they make a difference when the kayak gets used....

It's not obvious from the pics but there has been quite a bit of chafe damage to the line, which is held taut around the bow and stern by the tubing.
If the holes had chamfered edges, this could have been reduced, I think.

Here's a pic from a NDK boat with the hole well chamfered:
