                         stripping Cover                                  double braid Class Ii

       Class II core-dependent double braids are made in whole or part from any of the following high modulus fibers: Dyneema®, Vectran®, Tech-
       nora®, and Zylon®.
       Many high performance sailors like to strip the cover from the core to save weight aloft for halyard applications. In simple terms, you want to strip the
       cover from the core up to the area of the stoppers, cleats and winches. Leave the cover on the core wherever you have to cleat or winch the rope.
       The following is a simple, step-by-step method of stripping the cover and finishing the transition area where the cover ends and the core continues.




   1
                                                                Mark a dot on the cover in the area where you want the core to be exposed.

   step




                                                         Make slipknot 5 feet back from dot




step
       2          Tie a knot with a loop about 5 feet
                  back from the dot on the cover.
                                                                                                                                           Extract Core




step
       3           Extract core
                 Extract the core from the cover at the dot.
                 Extracting the core: Bend rope sharply at extraction point. With the pusher or any sharp tool such
                 as an ice pick, awl, or marlin spike, spread the cover strands to expose core. First pry, then, pull
                 the core completely out of cover.

                  Slide the cover back toward the knot, then
                  milk the cover from the knot to the core to
                  balance the cover and the core.




   5                LOCK stitch
 step




                  Lock stitch the cover to the core from the
                  dot back for about 3 complete passes.

                 From the point of the lock stich toward the end of the
                 cover material, measure 6 inches and mark. This
                 will be Mark 1 on the cover.

                 From Mark 1 measure 6 inches and
                                                                                                                        6 inches
 step            make another mark. This will be Mark                                                      Mark 1
                 2 on the cover. Mark 2 should now be                                         12 inches                                               Mark 2
                 about 12 inches from the lock stitch.

           This will be Mark A on the core.                                                           Mark 1
