Description

Interest Sign Up - Marlinespike Seamanship P – Paracord bracelets and other projects

This is not a lesson sign up, it is an interest feeler. Sign up below to get information when such a lesson is posted.

 

The club may be offering one or more Marlinespike lessons on Paracord for bracelets and other projects.

Sailors have a history of practical and decorative rope work and Paracord projects fit right in with that history.

 

This is an interest sign-up that does not obligate people to anything. If you are interested in such a lesson please sign up here. This will be used to notify people when such a lesson is offered. We have reserved room for Marlinespike lessons every month from December through April on Saturdays or Sundays.

When you sign up, you can leave comments. Let us know what kinds of projects would interest you.

 

Preference will be given to those who have the Marlinespike A rating but it likely will not be required.

 

Here are a few Paracord links to give you some ideas.

10-Second Soft Shackles

Interesting but nowhere near as strong – much easier to make, though

Here is a more complete list of links.

We will start with a basic paracord soft shackle that can substitute for a carabiner and progress bracelets and possibly other paracord projects. These can be fun and useful. Besides, the water is going to get very hard soon. We would cover in knots the Carrick Bend, the Ashley Stopper Knot, and the Diamond Knot, among others.

Please sign up if you want to be notified about these.
