Call Me "Splicy"

Another first for me today.  I did my very first splice.

I have an 11m heavy chain for my anchor then on to this I have spliced another 30m of rope called a Warp.  This is the recommended amount of line and chain for our length and weight.

I got my instructions from the Internet of course.

This is the splice I used.

At the start

And the finished job

Not quite as neat as the example, but it will certainly be sound.  For a first attempt I'm happy.
