Paradise Splicing

Paradise Splicing

Departure:  Clipper
Arrival:  Clipper
Distance (nm): 13.2
Engine Hours:  1.5
Crew & Guests:  Julian, Colin,
Weather:  Warm, relatively light (especially in Paradise Cove – hot!)


Feeling lazy and wanting to catch the sun, we headed straight up Racoon Straight (with the current) and anchored in Paradise cove. We watched (repeatedly) a YouTube video on splicing braided line and gave in a go. Much cursing at the fids later, Julian had a mess, and Colin had a bona bide splice worthy of a wash down bucket (pretty good!). Back down Racoon Straights (again, with the current), and back home with a sunburn.
