That's great for laid line - I can do that easily enough.

It's the double braid I want to try.

I've got my splice almost complete now. Just down to the tugging stage. Everything seems jammed up. I'm going to try using a come-along. Trouble is: it's snowing outside. Snowing!!!!!

Visualize the vastness of the oceans; the infinity of the heavens; the fickleness of the wind; the artistry of the craft and the frailty of the sailor. The oneness that may be achieved through the harmony of these things may lead one to enlightenment. - Flying Welshman
