D-SPLICER used by Alex Thomson Racing team

At facebook we spotted this picture where the rigging manager of the Alex Thomson racing team splices together two ropes to create a strop which will be used to connect back stays onto the rig. That strop has to hold up to 6 tons of load delivered from the mast.  Nice to see that the D-SPLICER fixed needle to be used.
