Re: Protective coatings for splices and stitching

lol, I can imagine. I wouldn't splice it. I think that's the "point of diminishing returns" for me. I was more talking about whipping and stitching.

Re: Protective coatings for splices and stitching

I understand that some of the tall ships that used to use tar on seizings now use latex paint. Of course, not much movement in some applications. No reason to think it would weaken the line.

There is "liquid whipping," but given the solvent content there is a high probability that the line would be weakened 5-10%. That is the effect that has been seen in climbing rope testing (nylon). I wouldn't expect any effect on Spectra/Dyneema.

I like plain old fashioned spar varnish.
