    New Splicing Addict

    Yesterday I bought 50' of 7/64" Amsteel at West Marine. When I got home today I made two whoopie slings, two soft shackles, and two continuous loops. I still have 19' left. Any suggestions for what to do with the rest of it?

    I have been asking friends if they could use continuous loops or soft shackles when I have spare. Also never hurts to have a few more for your self.

    If you have a West Marine near you get the Lash-it from them. They'll price match Redden and you won't have to pay shipping.

    It's grey. I'm considering making some JRB style dogbones for the bedroom hammock.
