I wouldn't strip the cover, even if it is a bit heavy. The cover acts to protect the inner core from UV damage and abrasion.

Also Use the splicing instructions from the Marlow site much stronger eye splice. Don’t forget to lock stitch or it will creep on you.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
