end for end 12strand Class Ii
Class II ropes are made in whole or part from high modulus fibers
Additional rope needed for splice
Dyneema Vectran Technora and Zylon
7 fid lengths
This end for end splice may be performed on new or used rope This is an
allpurpose splice technique designed for people who generally splice used
rope as frequently as new rope By following the procedure below the splice
can retain from 90 to 100 of average new rope strength and in used
rope up to the same proportion of residual used rope 1 Marking Measurements
Tape ends of line to be spliced Lay two ropes to be spliced
sidebyside and measure one tubular fid length two wire fid
lengths because wire fids are half size from taped end of each
line and make a mark Mark 1
From Mark 1 measure two tubular fid
lengths four wire fid lengths and
make Mark 2 on both lines Mark 3 Mark 2 Mark
From Mark 2 measure three and onehalf
tubular fid lengths seven wire fid lengths
and make Mark 3 on both lines 312 Fids 2 Fid

From Mark 1 in the direction of the taped
end of the line mark every second right and
left strand for three strands
Cut every marked strand and pull out of line
Mark 3
312 Fids
Mark 2
2 Fids
Mark 1 tapered tail
3 pair of strands
pulled out and cut off
tape at end can cause resistance and may
have to be removed in order to pull out cut
strands Some rope diameters may have pairs of strands in
8 strand
Tapered end will now have only 6 strands taper right and left direction In this case treat the
pairs of
remaining or 4 strands if the rope is an 8 strands as a single strand marking and cutting both
strand Tape tapered tail tightly in each direction as described below
to keep from unbraiding For an 8 strand construction mark every third left
and right strand for two seconds

lock stitch procedure
From Mark 2 at crossover count 8 picks in either direction
and insert stitching twine
Working towards the crossover pass end B back and
step forth through splice until a minimum of three 3 complete
stitches have been made on each side of crossover
2A Tie an overhand knot in each tail as close to its exit
point as possible
2B Insert tail of stitching twine at exact location where twine
emerges Using needle or small fid pull or push through
rope at a slight angle Pull hard on the end of the twine
so that the knot disappears inside the rope Trim off the
remaining twine close to the rope

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.
