    Back splice jams in windlass...is elongated splice a solution?-gctid399955

    A back slice is like a lump of stiff material and almost always jams my windlass (Lewmar V 700).

    I came across an article that describes an "elongated" splice which is less bulky and more flexible.

    Anybody else to there using it and how does it work?

    I have always used the back splice and have the same windlass. You need to thin the splice after about 3 to 5 full splices. The splice then tapers down to the normal rope.

      JimMc,

      Do you have G4 1/4" chain and 1/2" twisted nylon rope?

        I have 5/16" chain and 5/8" three strand rope.

        That windlass has various gypsy available. Mine came with a Gypsy that required the larger chain and rope.
