Jordan, does your yacht club require the use of 3-strand; or are you using that because it is easier to splice? I ask because double-braid is preferred by most boaters.

Also, in which part of Canada are you based? If on the West Coast or in Ontario, West Marine stores frequently offer seminars on splicing double-braided line. I don't practice enough , but it is not hard to learn.
