Bushell 31
Short Splice for Hawser & Shroud-laid ropes.
The hawser has 3 strands & the
shroud four. Unlay the latter to the
extent necessary for a short splice (p.
145) and the latter ^[former?] to about twice
that length. Split one of the hawser
strands & re-lay the two whole and
two halfstrands as though they were
four whole strands leaving as much
of them unlaid as is necessary for
a short splice. Crutch & short splice
the eight strands on the same principle
as the hawser short splice (p. 145.)
It is advisable to cut out the heart
of the unlaid part of the shroud
unless some considerable skill in
splicing has been attained, in which
case it may be shortened and the
hawser half strands twisted up with
additional yarns to bring them up
to the size of the whole strands.
