Splice question: making short double-eye strops

04 July 2014 - 04:46 PM

I have a need for a set of short (28") double ended strops. Basically eye splices one either end of a single rope. I want to build them with 3/8 12 braid, as the load requirement is quite high for the application (large catamaran), but the bury length @ 72xdiameter or even 48, has over lapping tapers and I can't for the life of me figure out how to do that.

Is there a way to do a splice with no overlap? 14" bury in 3/8 rope seems quite short...
