Following is an (edited) reprint of a cruisersforum post showing a really nice way to make a Brummel. This is a true Brummel without any fibers being inverted and without having to drag the entire tail of the line through the splice. The splice is very easy to make. This is the way to do it! Credit should go to Brion Toss publishing the splice and to his illustrator, Margie McDonald, for developing it. Obviously you need to taper and tuck the end to finish the splice.The "normal" way to make a Brummel splice, the double locking tucks were done by bringing the tail of the entire shroud back through. But wait a minute! What if we have a deadeye spliced on the end of the of the shroud now? How to get the thing done using only one end.
After you complete the brummel, be sure to taper the tail then bury it. You can follow the directions for the taper and bury on THIS document. You do not need to stitch the splice because you have used a Brummel!
Below is a video that shows the splice being done. There is a part 2 that covers the taper and the bury. Part 3 just pulls the bury into the cover so no big deal.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
