Jimmy Green Marine offer a wide range of rope and splicing solutions for permanently mooring your yacht:
Either 'at home' e.g. on a swinging mooring buoy or tucked away against a finger pontoon
Or 'visiting' where it may be necessary to secure your yacht to a mooring point of rusty metal.

Finishing Options include strops with hard eye and soft loop splice, bridles with centre eye splice and bridles with chain centre sections.
If you cannot build the exact mooring set-up that you're looking for online then email or call and speak to a member of our Rigging Sales Team
Tubular webbing, PVC Tube and leather are available for anti-chafe options. These are important extra features that you can add to protect the warp through e.g. the stemhead and over the bow roller
Mooring Compensators can be fitted prior to splicing for extra shock load capacity.

3 Strand or Anchorplait Nylon is the best rope on trots or piles where you are moored fore and aft.
N.B. Use only Anchorplait for swinging moorings - 3 strand lines may 'cockle' when the 'swing' turns against the lay of the rope.
The Octo balanced construction of Anchorplait prevents any chance of 'cockling'.

Selection process for determining the size of your mooring strop:

  1. Find the column in the table below that best represents your Boat Length Overall.
  2. Compare your displacement with the tonnage listed.
  3. If it is greater than displayed in your column in the table, consider moving across to the next column to increase the diameter.
  4. Take advice on local conditions and check the benchmark size from the table below against other similar sized boats moored in your area.
  5. Have a good look at the mooring configurations on neighbouring yachts with a critical eye and judge whether your set up should be the same.
  6. Consider whether you can make any improvements in terms of mooring convenience and anti chafe measures.

Permanent Mooring Warps, Strops and Bridles
Single Point generally means a Swinging Mooring
Double Point could be e.g. Fore and Aft between piles

Mooring Strops with Chain Centre Section

Rope/Chain/Rope combination bridles can be used as a permanent arrangement but are generally found to be a real asset when visiting different harbours or moorings.
Pass the rope through the ring or around the bollard (with a round turn if practicable) and back to the mooring cleat.
The chain centre section should take the brunt of the wear and tear.
This may include negotiating the lip of e.g. a concrete wall as well as rusty metal fixing points.
Where necessary connect the two ends of the chain to the spliced thimble eye of another suitable mooring line with a tested/rated shackle.
