Today marked our second session on how to make a proper splice.  A tight and well made splice is essential when joining parts of a line. After giving everyone a clear demonstration, Captain Aaron set us to work with our own chunks of line. Since some students had already learned how to splice while at their summer internships, they helped those students who were seeing splicing for the for the first time. By the end of class, we had all learned how to make an eye splice and a shore splice.
