I’d like to say I can splice double braided rope now having done quite a few over the last few months but the truth is that I haven’t done one yet without Andy Wall from New England Ropes leading me through it in this youtube video:

Here’s my latest effort – a new 14mm hallyard for our mainsail.

Half way there: this is the misseably tough stage – getting the loaded fid back through the outer
Finished: about an hour later after lots of pushing, shoving and swearing.

One day I’ll do one without Andy Wall.
