Default Synthetic Rope Repair

Here's a site i stumbled on that has some good detailed instructions on repairing or splicing synthetic rope.

If i get bored I'll start downloading and rehosting their PDF's here.

It's not too difficult.
I've had to do this from time to time, not on winch ropes, but on other load carrying ropes.

I've got a neighbor who made all of our competition water ski ropes which were used for pulling big pyramids. He's now retired & I'm sure he could do it.
