    Spicing 8 plait rope

    Saw a Video clip showing how to splice anchor chain to 12mm 8 Plait rope like in pic below
    I am using a Maxwell windless winch and the join from rope to chain needs to be immaculate for obvious reasons
    Spent ages trying to find the clip or another - but no joy

    Any experts here on splicing ??

    All the "rope to chain" clips are for 3 strand
    I do not want an eye loop
    The rope must be no fatter at join onto chain than the chain otherwise it will jam in winch

    But great search all the same and will study a few splices for other jobs
    Knots etc is something I am useless at - so the good old U-Tube sure helps

    Brings back memories used work Kinleith Papermill Tokoroa.
    Used rope to feed paper through.
    Used to do long splices quite regularly.
