Making an Eye Splice
Figure 3-20.–Clove hitch and two half hitches. EYE  SPLICE To make an eye splice with manila or synthetic lines, you must untwist the strands in the end of your line anywhere from 4 inches to 2 feet, depending on the size of the line, and splice them into the standing part of the line by tucking the unlaid strands from the end into the  standing  part. Learn to estimate the length of line you need to unlay for your complete splice so you will not finish short nor waste a lot of line by cutting it off. An original round of tucks, plus three more complete rounds, are Figure  3-21.–Stopper  hitch. enough for an ordinary eye splice. Four tucks are mandatory in nylon because of its low friction and stretch   characteristics. With large lines you must whip the ends of the strands before you start, otherwise they will unravel and become troublesome. Large lines also must be seized  at  the  point  where  the  unlaying  stops  or  you will have trouble working them. With any line up to about  2  inches,  you  can  open  the  strands  in  the standing part with your fingers. The fid must be used for larger lines. 3-15
