The main anchor rode system may be all chain or a chain/rope combination but a long length of suitable anchoring rope with a short piece of chain for the anchor end is much more convenient to store and deploy for additional warps that are not stowed for’d in the chain locker.
The main requirements for all these applications are good strength without being over-sized and difficult to handle and good shock absorption.
Nylon is generally the solution because it is stronger and has more elongation (elasticity, stretch) than polyester.
Nylon has 20% stretch at the breaking point, whereas polyester has 15%.
However, polyester has excellent all-round properties which may hold sway. Additional snubbing methods can then be employed when required.
The custom build design of our rope products allows you to select the appropriate splice for the anchor end and also a suitable finish for the bitter end if required. You can also add anti chafe options.
Select from these 4 main rope options for all the applications mentioned on this page:
LIROS Anchorplait White Nylon Article 01058JG - 100% Nylon (Polyamide) manufactured exclusively by LIROS Ropes for Jimmy Green Marine with the Jimmy Green designed Easy Splice Markers- UV stabilised, excellent weathering and wear resistance properties - 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.
Ideal for use as anchor warp as it will stay supple for the duration of it's working life.
