I need some splicing done.
It’s not anything big or important like a main brace, for example:
Not something that would cause untold damage and potential loss of life should it fail.
But it is still a skill which is way beyond me. I will be seeking expert advice on this by contacting the 6000 miles… yachting correspondent in due course. If anyone knows where to get splicing done, he will.
Incidentally, while I would surely fail at any attempt at actually splicing a main brace, if we were speaking euphemistically, I would have no problems with splicing the main brace.
Much more up my landlubbers’ alley. (Which isn’t a euphemism for anything, I promise.)
