In January 2012 we initiated the Splicing Section including pages about Brummel Splices. We added Lashings, the Barrel Hitch and Merit Badge Requirements to the Scouting Section, the Poacher's Knot and the Short Splice to the Boating Section, the Non-Slip Mono to the Fishing Section, the Lanyard (Diamond) Knot and the Ocean Plait Mat to the Decorative Section, with many new photographs elsewhere.
