First off apologies for a sort of double post, this was asked in another thread but suspect it got lost
The plan is..
Splice in a length of hi tech 12 strand* onto the double braid jib sheets
so that the splice end just before the winch
with full sail hard on the wind
-Get rid of the bowline knots onto the clew which always get stuck on the inner forestay when tacking, attach the 12 strand with a soft shackle.
-less weight hanging off the clew which should help in light airs
-the 12 strand is free & playing with splices is fun
All I could fine on the splice is this..
12-strand to double braid splice - SparTalk
So anyone spliced 12 strand to double braid - locked brummel splice work OK? Or any links/suggestions ?
Also, any thoughts?
(* The 12 strand is actually tech 12 8mm (3/8), says medium UV resilience but so overspeced something else will break first. I get the odd 100' free from friends who use it for high speed winch
work on film sets.)
