Re: Eye splice in double braid

A guy I used to sail with gave me the tip of using K-Y lubricant jelly to help when milking the core into the cover. Although I wondered if it would leave the splice too slippery, it seems to rinse out fairly easily after the splice is complete.

The best part is telling the clerk at the store that you're buying the K-Y for splicing.
