I agree with Chris ref splicing, much neater and stronger and long term. Any muppet can learn a good splice after 5mins on you tube these days

Looks like the bowline and half hitches are coming up which is good cos I know how to do them as well as the mooring quick release hitch and thats it.

I did doubt the bowline knot being attached to the bow eye due to that it can come undone if not under load so like someone mentioned earlier on in the thread I just added a figure eight knot on the loose end to stop it slipping through.

I still can't see what is wrong with using a snap hook though... unless someone can enlighten me

Depending on which pattern of Karibiner you use, they can self release. I used to use one on the end of my diving reel, until trying to find my way out of a wreck one day, the end came to me rather than the other way around. I'll demonstrate how it happens when we meet up again.

ertainly

Agreed No snap hooks and the Karibiner would have to be Tested if only you knew someone with a spare one and owed you a favour.

I think Chris Moody;s Solution is rather elegant and it's how I do it.

I only use two knots at sea. A round turn and multiple hitches and a clove hitch. What nobody seems to have mentioned is a Bowline if exposed to tension can be a bugger to undo, and that can be iffy if your hanging over the tubes trying to undo it. So if you have to do a Bowline put a bite in it then it undoes every time regardless of how tight it is.

Yeah Practice on Whammy (Blue Polyprp) Its shite to work with so it teaches you good attention to detail. then try with nice rope and you'll be well impressed

Also when you have split your three starnds but a ring od Insulting tape around the rope to stop the strands unravelling further.

Take your three Strans and run a spiral of Insulting tape along each strand different colour for each Strand makes it easy ro see where your splicing is going

You should get pleased with your efforts on about the tenth attempt
