Spliced A Good Idea At The Time


Recommended Posts

Spring bank week 

if you see a a middle aged bald bloke , scratching his head it's ok . I'm just splicing my new ropes . Throw him a beer if you like it might make it an easier job :shocked mind you the more I drink less likely they are going to look like what they are suppose too:party:

I spliced a soft eye in one end of my mooring lines and attached a carabiner clip. These are not for high tidal variations, I have plain ones for that, but work a treat on the northern rivers, clip to boat - line to shore; being sailies the lines are stowed when we are under way so this is quick and easy. On the mooring I have made lines 'to length' and attached to the quay heading, with clips at the boat end, so tying up is fast and mooring lines stay clean for out and about.
