Re: New to Dyneema, want to make lifelines
I suggest terminating each end of each lifeline with a sailmakers thimble, and using multiple turns of smaller stuff--dacron, whatever, to lash the terminals to the stancheons. That will make it adjustable, which you'll need as the stuff will stretch at first. And you can't knot dyneema--you have to splice it. Use a brummel splice and tuck twice as long a tail as you would with a dacron rope. I went with, I think, 5/16 or 3/8. 1/4" is strong enough but I wanted something easier to grab.
Brion Toss's "Rigger's Apprentice" tells how to make a brummel splice when you don't have access to each end of the rope--which you won't after you've made the first terminal and threaded the rope through the stancheons.
