Mooring Lines spliced into either end of a Chain Centre Section can be a real asset for temporary, overnight or permanent mooring arrangements.

The Jimmy Green Rigging Team are well practised in making up Chain Centre Section Mooring Bridles and can advise you on any aspect of your selection.
Email us a sketch of any complex arrangement you are hoping to replace or upgrade.
Rope/Chain/Rope Bridles are ideal for securing your boat to a fixed pile or mooring buoy through a metal ring.
Set your lengths so that the chain centre section and not the rope comes into contact with the rusty metal.
Webbing can be fitted to the chain to soften the harsh contact of metal on metal.

Rope/Chain/Rope Bridles

LIROS Anchorplait Nylon or 3 Strand Nylon spliced directly - 1 link splice - onto either end of a short length of calibrated anchor chain.

Sizes available = 14mm rope spliced into 8mm chain, 16mm into 10mm chain, 18mm into 10mm chain, 24mm into 12mm chain.

Selection process for a Rope/Chain/Rope Bridle (overnight visit or extended stay):

  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 the displacement is greater than displayed in your column in the table, or the yacht is a multihull, consider moving across to the next column to increase the diameter.
  4. Consider the application for your bridle - Will it be used as a single or double mooring point or as an anti-chafe mechanism to protect your regular lines
  5. Consider the nature of the application - the chart is conservative and aimed at an overnight visit
  6. For a more permanent arrangement or mooring on an exposed mooring, there is a specific chart in the Permanent Mooring Size Guide

If you are using the bridle to negotiate a rough obstacle around or close to the landside mooring point and with a view to joining the two chain ends to your regular mooring lines, select a suitable mooring warp diameter more in line with your current visiting warp set up:

The Jimmy Green Rigging Team can splice Rope/Chain/Rope bridles together from a choice of:

  1. Galvanised chain from 3 top brands: MF Catenificio, Lofrans, Titan
  2. Stainless steel chain in G3 from William Hackett
  3. Anchorplait Nylon (1 link splice)
  4. 3 Strand Nylon or 3 strand Polyester

Anchorplait White Nylon Article 01058JG is manufactured EXCLUSIVELY by LIROS Ropes with Easy Splice Markers for Jimmy Green Marine.
The 8 strand construction [2 pairs left hand, 2 pairs right hand] gives a balanced performance and no twist under tension.
Anchorplait is the rope that won't cockle. In fact, it flakes like chain.

LIROS 3 Strand Nylon article 00110 - 100% Nylon (Polyamide) manufactured to DIN EN ISO 1140 Standard has the same strength and stretch properties as the 8 strand, Octoplait version, is less expensive than Anchorplait but suffers a little from stiffness once used in water, especially in the bigger sizes.

LIROS 3 Strand Polyester article 00111 - 100% Polyester manufactured to DIN EN ISO 1140 Standard is the best all round twisted lay rope available for mooring applications with excellent handling, combined with dependable strength, good elongation and supreb weather and wear resistance.
