Rope splicing

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 a friction as well as on the phenomena of self-locking and it provides a 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 if some would try to forget a professional rigger." claims Olaf Wegmann. For 20 years he has been a self-employed rigger and a professional in his field. Inaccurately completed splices minimize the breaking strength of the certain rope up to 75%. Regarding this a splice proves to be very useful: A rope, which has been spliced, withstands a burden twice as high as a knotted rope.

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.

Gemini X 16 6.500 4.000 - 39 %
Tasmania 12 2.900 1.750 - 40 %

Information: daN = decanewton, is the unit of force. 1 Newton = 0.102 kgf, 1daN = 1.020 kgf (or kilopond, approximating 1 daN (10 N) to 1 kg).
