Re: New England Ropes Synthetic lifelines?!?!

I used eye splices with thimbles and lashing lines on one end and eye splices with shackles on the other. I spliced in CS Johnson pelican hooks for gates. You need to make the lines about 6 or 8 inches short, as the line has some give as the strands bury. I followed the NE instructions to do the splices and stitch them.
