Splicing Dyneema

There are several ways to splice dynemma and it is one of the simplest ropes to splice.

Equipment - Hollow Fid, Splicing needles, chopping board, sharp knife

Splice 1 - Long tail splice

The long tail splice is really easy as you take the short end of the rope and feed it through the long tail of the rope, you then take the long end of the rope and feed it through the short end. This locks the splice in place. Now take the short end and feed it into the core of the rope.

Advantages - Once done, the splice is locked in place. Disadvantage - You can only do this type of splice on one end

Splice 2 - Three dolphin splice

With this splice you need to take the short tail of the splice three times through the long tail before you feed the short into the core of the splice.

Advantage - Can be done on any size of rope. Disadvantage - This type of splice can undo if it is not under tension

Raising money for the RNLI

We were only on our third sail in our brand new boat to us and we had to call the coast guard for assistance. That assistance came in the shape of a RNLI boat from Portpatrick, so we have decided to raise money for the RNLI through our Damsels in distress page on just giving, that way you know that any money goes straight to them. We have set ourselves a target of £500 and we would like to honour our pledge, so if you like our videos then please give a little to those who rescue people in the seas around the UK.
