Actually I'm following this thread with interest. Splicing is an area that I know next to nothing about, but would like to.

Earlier on pdqaltair made some great arguments against splicing and promoted the bowline.

I just wanted to try the splice. But so far I wouldn't call it 'fun'.

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
