Product description

From the Back Cover

""The Splicing Handbook" is particularly helpful in explaining--and showing with simple, straightforward illustrations--how to manage the bewildering array of new rope materials and weaves."--"Down East"

"Here's a book you can read for the pleasure of knowing how splicing is accomplished. It is also a reference book that you and your crew can review when tackling a . . . specialty splicing job."--"Shoreline"

The only reference devoted entirely to splicing today's ropes, this new and expanded edition includes step-by-step illustrations and explanations for the most useful and popular splices in traditional twisted and modern braided ropes. Now covers eery kind of splicing project a boater is likely to encounter, including modern cordage such as Spectra, and wire and rope-to-wire splices.

About the Author

Barbara Merry is a marine rope worker with twenty years of experience in the splicing trade. Founder and owner of the Marlinspike Artist in Wakefield, Rhode Island, she has worked on projects for boats of all sizes, from small traditional sailing craft and working schooners to commercial fishing vessels and U.S. Coast Guard cutters. She has taught at the WoodenBoat School and the Northeast Maritime Institute, and has written on rope and rope technology for WoodenBoat and Invention and Technology. John Darwin, a master of rope technology, sailed in many capacities from deckhand to captain before working shoreside for a large rope manufacturer. A former rope designer, John still tests and fabricates rope.
