Footropes

This is the way that I make Footropes…

Completed Footrope on Port side of Fore MainSail Yard

I first cut a length of Line. I use this brand of String because I like how the Nylon soaks up the Superglue.

Make a Loop and tie a Clove Hitch with some Black Sewing String and loop around it.

Clove Hitch around Loop
Put around 4 or 5 Loops around it and a dab of Superglue
Clove it to Spar
Make a couple sets of Line with Midshipman’s Knot/Figure 8 Loops on the ends…
Slide through the Footrope Line…

Figure Eight Noose

I continued on with the Line and made a Clove Hitch on the end…

I put this Block on the end of the Line.
