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

The RNLI turned 200 years old on 4th March 2024. So as sailors and people who promote the joy of sailing, we thought that we would like to raise just £200. What we hope is that other people take up the shout and raise their own £200. In the last 200 years the RNLI have saved over 144,000 lives and yet they are funded entirely by people like you. They are not government funded.
