Re: Chain/rope splice windlass
my windlass has a rope/chain gypsy but it's a lofrans so the rules may be slightly different. Lofrans are very definite on the requirements for theirs: (a) 3-strand only as it needs to be hard enough to give the grip (b) join rope to chain with a back splice through the last link, not a long splice through several links.
there have in the past been lots of posters on this subject who don't follow these rules and get good results. you can always try different methods and see which works.

One hull good, two hulls better.
