Splicing Double Braid

Picture this: You’re on the mooring or at the dock, the wind is either too nonexistent to sail or its too much for a comfortable powerboat ride. Why go home? There is always something to be done on the boat, isn’t there? What to do? SPLICE!

Grab a rope that could use a new eye, or needs some loose, gnarly ends fixed up and get your splice on. Could be a dockline, a halyard, a towing bridle – any ropes is a good candidate for a solid eye loop.

This video will help you make beautiful splices with rope that you might think was difficult to splice. But you will be a pro after watching this video. And then grab a beer and your fid and relax aboard your boat, find some shade and practice – then perfect your splice!
