eye splice 12strand Class Ii
Class II ropes are made in whole or part from any of the following high modulus
Additional rope needed for splice
fibers Dyneema Vectran Technora and Zylon 312
fid lengths plus length of eye
with thimble 312 fid lengths plus 12
The eye splice is used to place a permanent loop in the end of a rope generally
circ in feet
for attachment purposes to a fixed point An eye is also used to form the rope
around a thimble which is used to protect the rope especially when it is to be
attached to a shackle chain or wire rope
This eye splice may be performed on new or used rope This is an all
purpose 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 measurement
Tape end of line to be spliced and measure 1 tubular fid
length or 2 wire fid lengths because wire fids are half the
length of tubular fids from taped end of line and make Mark 3
Mark 1 Mark 1
Form size of
Mark 2
From Mark 1 measure 2 tubular fid lengths or 4 wire fid
eye desired
lengths and make Mark 2 Now form size of eye desired 1 Fid 2 Fid
and make Mark 3 or
2 Wire Fids
m a k i n g ta p e r
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
tape at end can cause resistance and may have to be removed in order to pull
out cut end will now have only 6 strands remaining or 4 strands
for an 8 strand braid Tape tapered tail tightly to keep from unbraiding
Some rope diameters may have pairs of strands in right and left direction
In this case treat the pairs of strands as a single strand marking and
8 strand
cutting both in each direction as described above
Three strands or pairs of strands right and left
pulled out and cut off
Splice loop etc
Retape end to
stop unbraiding Mark 1 Mark 2

Measure 312 tubular fid lengths 7 wire fid lengths make Mark 4
Insert fid and tapered tail at Mark 3 and bring fid out at Mark 4
Pull fid and tapered tail out Dont let the line twist

Remove fid Pull hard on tapered tail with one hand With other hand smooth bunched
line towards eye splice until Marks 2 and 3 converge Now smooth the cover away from
eye towards Mark 4 Mark the tapered tail where it emerges at Mark 4 Pull tail out several
inches cut tail off at an angle so the angle cut ends at this mark Then with both hands

to finish eye splice
When finished Mark 2 and Mark 3 should be at the same point in the vertex of the
eyewhich yields eye size desired To finish eye splice the splice must be procedure lock stitch procedure
Step 1 B Step 4
Pass stitching through After completing Step 3 rotate spliced part of rope 90
spliced area near throat of and reinsert end A into spliced area in the same area
eye as shown and in the same fashion as in Steps 1 2 and 3 The
splice will now be stitched on two planes A to each
Step 2
Reinsert as shown pulling
snug but not tight
Step 5
Step 3 3 2 1 After stitching at least three complete stitches as in
Continue to reinsert as B Step 3 extract both ends A and B together through the
shown until you have at same opening in the braid Tie them together with a
least 3 complete stitches square knot and reinsert back into braidbraid

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.
