The book begins with basic information about rope materials and structures
the ropes themselves and will teach you how to entangle all kinds.
What the book will teach you:
· How to create strong and reliable braids on ropes of modern construction (Kernmantle, Double-Braid, Hollow Braid).
· Braid ropes from materials that best suit your requirements - Polyester, Polyamide, Dyneema, Vectran, ...
· How to adapt the ropes to your needs to make the setup easier and safer.
· How to use the covering on the ropes so that they hold better in the couplings, prevent abrasion and thus extend their life.
English annotation of the book:
The time when every vessel going to sea made use of 3-strand rope has gone. Splicing that type of rope and cord is relatively straightforward. Nowadays the most common type of rope used on board yachts, dinghies, motorboats, working boats and ferries is braided rope. Few people have the knowledge to splice it, or even where to start. Splicing Modern Ropes is the first guide to this essential skill. It explains why splices are better - and stronger - than knots or shackles for joining or shortening rope, and how to go about it. With this skill, yachtsmen can customize their ropes, optimize their deck layout, taper their sheets for ease of handling, and splice an extra cover on their ropes to give better grip, avoid chafe and make them last longer. Using clear, step-by-step photography and detailed instructions, this book will guide readers through all the stages required to make strong, reliable splices.
