Question Help w/Splice (in Tacoma, WA)

I've got an old Hood Furler that has a "Continous Loop" furling line. I've got the new double braid in place (just hanked it to the old one & pulled thru), but could use some help with a "constant diameter, end-to-end splice. I've looked at the
Samsom & New England Rope guides, but would feel more comfortable knowing that it was done right.

ANYONE in the Tacoma, WA area help me out. I'm sure this is a 2-minute job
for somebody who knows how to do it.

Thanks!

why not get a small length of similar line and practice on it at home with a few of the same splices before you tackle the real one?
