11 Link Splice - whipping at throat, two pairs finish in link 9, tapered to link 11, with long heat sealed tails whipped around link in pairs.
1 Link Splice - a crown splice formed around the last link of the chain.
Splicing Compatibility - the maximum diameter of rope that will splice successfully into a given chain calibration is limited by the amount of rope fibres that the chain link(s) will accommodate and still allow a degree of articulation in the joint:
- 10mm Anchorplait - 6mm and 7mm chain
- 12mm Anchorplait - 7mm and 8mm chain
- 14mm Anchorpalit - 8mm and 10mm chain
- 16mm Anchorplait - 10mm chain both splices, and 8mm chain with the one link splice only (tight fit)
- 18mm Anchorplait - 10mm chain
- 20mm Anchorplait - 12mm chain
- 24mm Anchorplait - 12mm chain
N.B. We do splice 16mm Octoplait into 8mm Chain, but only with the one-link splice, and that is a tight fit in the link.
Jimmy Green Marine offer a choice of 3 top manufacturers for Calibrated Grade 40 Anchor Chain, all eminently suitable for splicing into Octoplait Please bear in mind that while it is possible to splice Octoplait into Grade 70 chain, the break load of the rope will not match that of the chain.
