Splicing Rope to Anchor Chain...

Does anyone have any instructions/pics on how to splice 3-strand nylon rope, either (a) directly onto anchor chain, or (b) into an eye so that I can shackle it to the end of the anchor chain?

I've had a quick look round on here and on the www - can't seem to find any obvious instructions.........

I'd be grateful for any help!!

Cheers,

Dylan...

Ah...the bowline...

Thanks for that guys. I suspect that my abilities with rope are somewhat lacking - I'll see how I get on!!

When I was a lad, my wee scout handbook showed how to do splicing and whipping (of rope ), so there's a possible link for you too.

C'mon guys, splicing regular 3 plaid rope aint exactly hard! all the fenders on my boat have the correct length of rope spliced on, and when I can be bothered I always back splice the end of ropes as it looks nice, now if an oul hardboat nobber can splice his own ropes, I'm sure any of you 'dib-dib-dib' lot ought to able to, it really aint johnny rocket science, is it!

Oooh, well done Johnny! Hey, I heard a rumour that your fenders are now decorated with fairy and leprechaun picures!

It's true! I'm really turning rather camp. If it carries on like this, I could well end up buying a rib
