Help with an eye-splice

Unread post by onewaygeorge » Mon Feb 18, 2019 11:40 pm

Is anybody willing to help me out by making a couple of good quality eye-splices in some fairly heavy warp. I need a new mooring strop and after last autumns excitement I don't want to use a piece of "ribbon" again.

George, If you wish, I will make you a Pick Up Strop from Kevlar rope, I have used this rope for many years on my mooring at Piel also on the Club moorings ,no problems.

Regards,
Norman.

Norman, That would be very kind. Shall we discuss the size, and the amount of beer, the weekend after next (pool tournament).
Peter. i was thinking of doing one in that 8mm poly-pro that I was giving away. Thinking of winning the "shortest voyage" for a second year!

Hello George, as Pete says there are lots of demos on youtube, some clearer than others. The one I think easiest to follow is this one:
