Manufactured in Italy from marine grade stainless steel HR and specially designed elastomers (rubber inserts that provide the shock absorption)
Master Mooring Device 20 Plus Factors:
Balanced load bearing capacity
High load bearing shackle end connectors.
Rated Manufacturer Break Load.
Rated Manufacturer Elasticity.
Sizes 1, 2 and 3 have the same break load but the shore hardness of the elastomer is different to create the right degee of elasticity for the weight of yacht.
Douglas Marine publish a manufacturer minimum break load for reassurance:
|Yacht Displacement||17-25 tonnes||25-35 tonnes||35-45 tonnes|
|Douglas Break Load||27000kg||27000kg||27000kg|
Jimmy Green Rigging Team Advisory
- Attach a slack warp alongside the spring as a security measure.
- Deploy a second, independent mooring line for reassurance.
These precautions are especially important when the yacht is left unattended for long periods.
