The term splicing refers to a procedure used to join two ends of a rope or wire, which can be made of synthetic, metallic material or material of plant origin. Splicing has two main purposes: to join two ends rope together by alternatively interweaving the end strands and to tie a bowline at the end of a rope. The bowline, also known in Italian as “cappio del bombardiere” is a classic knot to form a fixed loop at the end of the rope. It is easy to tie and untie and is generally considered a reliable knot. Splicing is particularly recommended on ropes used in mooring and manoeuvring and it is also the most common way to join mooring line extremities as, if correctly performed, makes knots unnecessary. Although making knots is basic know-how for every skilled sailor and pleasure boater, spliced ropes are preferred to knotted ropes as knots can cause significant loss of strength to a rope that may lead to troubles.Osculati online catalogue displays splicing hardware of the best brands on the market.
