There are two commonly used versions of a rope-to-chain splice. One looks like a backsplice and is only connected at the end link. The other looks like a long splice and requires a fair number of seizings for its strength and continues forward along the chain.

I hope you're talking about the rope chain splice that I'm thinking of. I believe that there are several versions.

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.
