Finally a video for beginners at eye splicing. Boat Builder Bob Emser takes us through the process of eye splicing polyester Sta-set rope. Bob reveals several tips that the expert/professional eye splicers fail to mention. Using a common line size for small boat 5/16" (8mm) Bob make splices and show how they are use on his boat a Haven 12 1/2 sailboat. In addition to a basic eye slice Emser shows how to add brass thimbles and snap shackles.
