Re: Splicing Old Double Braid Line--Sewn Splice?

Samson Rope published a special splice for this:

It isn't as strong because the cover isn't spliced back into the core, but it is a lot easier. I've used it on line (jib sheets) that is oversized so the reduced strength is not an issue.

I'm no longer participating on SailNet.
