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

I've been using soft shackles to hold my eye spliced jib sheets to the sail for about a year. It works very nicely.

If the experiment works well for you then the next upgrade is to make some tapered jib sheets.
boats that I sail on regularly: Pearson 28-2, Rondar 505, Yankee 30, Blanchard Junior
