Rope Supply & Splicing offer a full splicing service, for yachts, catamarans, multi-hulls, dinghies, Sheet rope, Halyards
We supply and splice rope for all motor cruisers from Mooring Lines, davits lines, Lifting strops, anchoring bridles and snubs, fender lines
Ropes for special applications in custom size and length, can be made.
We supply a variety of colors with custom lengths available.
We can provide sets of mooring warps in Braid On Braid or Hollow Braid with additional custom anti-chafe protection added to the custom made spliced eyes
Ropes of larger diameters and custom specific can be ordered in and spliced.
For running rigging replacement we can work with you on the specifications and measurements, we are also happy to attend on site to withdraw the rope and measure and reinstall. (Suncoast Area)
With regard to hardware and fittings we can splice on customer supplied fittings whether existing or new and obviously we can quote for supply and fit.
If the rope construction allows we can three strand splice, taper splice, eye splice, endless splice, dual core rope is also available for boats with split tails (dinghy mainsheets) combination splice, splice tip for race halyards etc...
A brief list of services provided is shown below:-

What is the difference between a knot V splicing?
Most rope can be spliced, this is normally the preferred method of termination. A good splice using the correct method should not reduce the strength of the rope by more the 10%.
Simply do not tie knots it will fail!
A knot will reduce the strength of the rope by a very significant amount, upwards of 60%+. This loss is caused by the tightening bends and compression found in any knot, it will compress and cut through the outer then the inner core, it's very difficult to see as the cutting is happening deep under the main section of rope.
The degree to which a rope will be weakened depends on the knot, type of rope and the material from which it is made but can be upwards of a 60% reduction in strength, which isn't hard to achieve if you think of the shock load when wiping out.
EYE SIZES ARE IMPORTANT
If the angle is wrong than the splice is wrong!
The angle formed at the throat of a splice when it is loaded should be 30 degrees or less. This means that a length of the eye when flat must be 2.7 times the diameter of the object which the eye is to be used and the distance from bearing point to the throat when in use should be at least 2.4 times the diameter. Some material like Aramids and Dyneemas will require a larger eye with an angle at the throat of 15 degrees or even less.
