Jimmy Green Multihull V Bridle Advisory
The wider angle involved with setting up a V bridle on broader beam multihulls may make it prudent to deploy separate hardware-connected lines.
Mantus Marine manufacture a BRIDLE PLATE solution.
Single lines can be 3 strand (twisted lay) construction: 3 STRAND STROPS rather than ANCHORPLAIT if preferred.

V Bridle Online Custom Build Instructions
The Jimmy Green Rigging Sales Team are very happy to help you to build and order a bridle to meet your bespoke requirements.
Please take extra care when ordering because once a bespoke item has been started (cut) it can neither be cancelled or returned for a refund.
Follow these steps, building a > from the top to get an instant quote and complete the order yourself:
Select Option 1 - Make your choice of splice to attach to your cleats onboard
Select Option 2 - Pick your rope and enter the length of the first tail. This will be the length from bearing edge to bearing edge
Select Option 3 - Add an anti-chafe option, if required
Select Option 4 - Add a compensator option, if required
Select Option 5 - Select a centre eye splice
Select Option 6 - Pick the matching rope and enter the length of the second tail. This will be the length from bearing edge to bearing edge
Select Option 7 - Add a compensator option, if required
Select Option 8 - Add an anti-chafe option, if required
Select Option 9 - Make your choice of finish to attach to your cleats onboard
Ensure that you select matching rope for each tail and a matching finish for attaching to your cleats in order to create a symmetrical V
The mooring compensators will be fitted nearer the centre eye splice unless otherwise specified by email.
Any anti chafe can then be suitably positioned to protect the tails as they pass through the fairleads and on to the cleats.
If for any reason you would prefer an asymmetrical configuration with non matching splicing/whipping on the two tails and/or one tail longer than the other, please order as above and send an email confirming your desired specification with a sketch if possible
e.g If your fairleads are not positioned the same port and starboard you may prefer a loop splice on the end of one tail for a fixed length and a longer second tail with a whipping in order to adjust the bridle to take the load equally.
Once you have made a selection in all the drop down boxes available, the website will generate:
The website will accept a length to 3 decimal points. However, this is not practicable for mooring and anchoring bridles
For short strops and bridles, the Jimmy Green Rigging Team aim for a bearing edge to bearing edge measurement which is accurate to within + or - the diameter of the rope
All ropes stretch to some extent under load. Mooring and Anchoring ropes stretch more than most.
Please allow for stretch under load when determining your finished length
