William H. Seward Yacht Club

 Founded in 1975!

Welcome to our website!

During two days in early February, 2014, the club sponsored a class on splicing rope. Below are the resources that the instructor generated and collected for the students. We hope that you find them useful. Bill Ennis was the instructor.

Splicing resources are in four categories: those generated by the instructor, documents found on-line showing 3-strand splicing, on-line documents on double-braid splicing, and general information on ropes.
