Splices and cable connections Splicing and whipping is a traditional craft, which is still in use today and cannot be replaced by modern technology. Splicing is the term used to describe the unbreakable and lasting bond and repair of fibre and wire ropes by the intertwining of the individual strands.

Splicing Yacht Ropes

- A traditional craft -

Why splice yacht ropes?

Many yachts have oversized lines within their rigging, which are expensive and unnecessary. Professional sailors and regatta participants are well aware of the advantages of spliced lines and use them to cut down on weight and save money.
A line that has been spliced can easily hold double the load than one which has simply been tied in a knot. However, an incorrect splice or knot can reduce the tensile strength of a rope by up to 75%!
Another advantage of spliced lines is their movement through blocks and rollers, with hardly any chafing or rubbing.

Why are spliced ropes so strong?

The strength of a splice is based on friction and the phenomenon of self-locking and can only be completely maintained if a splice is done by a professional.
