RE: [AtkinBoats] UnlikelyBoatBuilder: Mystery Solved!
it's on my list to go out and get some rope this weekend and start practicing those splices. Looking forward to getting my small bakyard shop done and making some of my own blocks too. These will just be for fun and I don't know yet what sizes I'll need. All in due time.

I think grommets are like eye splices... once you figure out how to make them, you can't figure out how you ever got along without them :-)
