‘Splicing modern ropes’ by Jan-Willem Polman is a practical handbook with over 30 different splicing instructions in high-res photos. Learn step-by-step how to splice an eye in a braided rope, whether the rope has a polyester core or a core of super fibers (e.g. Dyneema® or Vectran®) . Also how to optimize your boat by creating light-weight tapered sheets or splice in an extra cover for more durability or extra grip. The book gives a great exposure of D-Splicer splicing tools and shows how to use them.
For any seafarer, splicing rope is an essential skill. But the traditional 3-strand rope is fast disappearing. So how do you splice braided rope? This is the definitive guide to this crucial skill. Most of the techniques are quite easy to master - and also fun to do. See why splices are better - and stronger - than knots or shackles for joining or shortening rope, and follow the step-by-step photographs and clear instructions to find out how to splice efficiently. Learn how to* make strong, reliable splices in braided rope * select ropes in the materials that best suit your on-board requirements* customise your ropes to make your setup easier and safer* optimise your deck layout and save weight on board* taper your sheets for ease of handling* splice an extra cover on your ropes to give better grip in clutches, avoid chafe and make them last longer While a knot can reduce the strength of a rope by as much as 50%, a well-spliced rope loses only 5-10%. The techniques, insights and suggestions within these pages will be invaluable to all boaters, whether recreational or commercial.
