Line Splicing

Good Splices at Reasonable Prices

For many years, Fisheries Supply has been the place to go for splicing. High-tech splices, low-tech splices, we do it all. Our splicers are sailors who not only produce good looking splices but, after years of sailing, are familiar with the little details that make a splice truly functional.
 
 
Due to the varied nature of the materials used, for splicing purposes, rope is divided into 2 classes.
 
Each class has its own fiber properties and requires a different splicing technique.
 
Class I rope includes olefin, polyester, nylon or a combination of these fibers. These tend to be the more traditional dacron and nylon ropes commonly used throughout the industry.
 
Class II rope includes Dyneema, Vectran, Technora, PBO or one of these fibers as a component. These are usually the "high tech" ropes popular on racing sailboats and dinghies.
 
 
For clarity of organization, it is often convenient to divide ropes by their structure.
 
Both of the above systems are evident in the descriptions and table below.
 
 
NOTE You will need to provide us with specific instructions about the splices and services you are ordering: tight eye splice, loop eye splice, type of thimble, length of loop, length of cover splice, length of stripped cover splice, etc., etc. Be as specific as you can. Provide us with a phone number, in case we have questions.
 
You can provide these instructions by opening the Shopping Cart, where each item in the cart has an option to "Add a Note to this item".
 
Make certain you place your instructions in the "Instuctions for Fisheries" field.

Core-to-Core Splice
 
(Inter-locking center splice or IC splice) Used to splice a thin high-tech line to a thicker polyester tail to create a 2-part halyard with "wire/rope" characteristics
 
 
Stripped Cover
 
Saves weight on high-tech, Class II sheets and halyards by removing the outer cover, but preserves the original structure in the tail for gripping by winches and clutches. This splice creates the transition between the stripped and non-stripped portions of the line
 
 
Cover Splice
 
Adds a short cover to any line for better gripping characteristics for clutches and winches; may also be used for extra chafe protection
 
 
Core Replacement/Cover
 
Allows for sheath customization for aesthetic or color coding purposes. Can also be used to add a cover to any single braid line
 
 
Flemish/Reeving Eye Splice
 
A small, cover (only) eye splice on the tail end of a halyard; used as a secure attachment point for the "messenger line" when re-leading or reeving new halyards through masthead blocks or sheaves from deck level
 
 
Core Only Splice
 
To make an eye splice (e.g. for a shackle) in the stripped end of a treated core, Class II line
 
 
Whippings
- Finish the ends of lines so they don't unravel
 
 
Monkey Fist
- To add weight to the end of a line, e.g. for throwing
