SailorMitch will become famous soon enough
Since it is my boat, I appreciate your comments, Jimmy. I've printed out the Samson, New England and Marlow directions for splicing dyneema lines. Working from the old joke that a camel is a horse designed by a committee, I fear what kind of splice I'll end up with. But seriously, I have a test piece of Warpspeed to play with and will try a couple of them to see what will work for my limited skills in this area. I do want to keep the cover on (just because), and I will lock it down with stitches. Again, thanks for your comments.
