Splicing and Rigging – a traditional trade
Splicing and rigging is a traditional trade, which is still indispensable and cannot be replaced by any modern technology. But, what does the term « splicing » actually mean? A splice is the tear-and break-proof connection of fiber or wire ropes.
Their individual strands entwine the ropes with each other. The stability of a splice connection is based on friction as well as on the phenomena of self-locking and it provides higher strength than the original rope. The rigger knows different kinds of splicing: eye-splice, long-splice, short-splice, and end-splice.
« It is a serious mistake to neglect thinking about a professional rigger. »
Many yachts are equipped with oversized lines which are in fact unneccsesary and costly. Therefore, professional sailors and racers know about the advantages of spliced ropes and use them to efficiently safe weight and money.
