    I'm testing a home-made three-strand splice on my dogs tie-out. She's rough on ropes and such, thought it'd be a good way to test my ability.



    Not the best looking splice, but it's my first. Dog has been yanking on it for about a month and a half. Didn't have the twine so I used tape. The process is fairly simple and seems to work really well!

    Now that is a good test for your skills, I think it actually looks like you did good job on that. That splice is easier every time you tie it.

    Thanks Tim, the Admiral agrees with you that they look pretty good, I'm hypercritical of my work I guess. I figured she was a good quality control tester, no damage or loosening yet. I plan to do four custom short 'dock lines' once we are settled in the slip, I'll be doing three braid line in a blue/ off white to match the boat- will post pix of those when they are done too... Wow- I have a lot of projects brewing that I need to post photos of!

    If you end up out here on the Tennessee River you will have to do a few of those with 36" loops for use on the locks, we call them lock loops.

    Good to know!! I'm sure my learning curve will be nearly vertical if/ when we get off the lake and onto the rivers. We will be counting on you and all our friends at BH2 to help keep it manageable!!

    I have watched this and other videos. I can get the first tuck fine. The second one so-so. I have no idea what to do with #3. I wonder if you could do this again with close ups and go very slow with the the first three tucks?
