LIROS 14mm Octoplait Polyester Spliced to 8mm DIN766 Calibrated Grade 40 Anchor Chain

Suitable for boats up to 10 metres length overall or 2 tonnes displacement (LIROS guide)

Octoplait can be attached to chain using a long (11 link) splice or a shorter 1 link splice
The 11 link splice is not recommended by some windlass manufacturers for use on a rope/chain gypsy
The break load is slightly greater on the 1 link splice than the 11 link splice but the critical strands around the end link should be scrutinised regularly for signs of chafe.
The 11 link splice should also be regularly visually scanned for wear along all the interwoven strands including the whipped ends
