Braided Leaded Anchor Line
Talamex ready-to-use anchor lines are produced from braid on braid polyester with a stainless steel thimble spliced into one end at the factory.
Polyester line is very suitable for anchoring because it is relatively heavy (sinks), abrasion and chafe resistant with sufficient stretch to absorb the shock loads caused by wind, tide and wave action.
The lead is added into the anchor end of the line (the end with the stainless steel thimble) at 140g per metre.
This helps to weight the anchor end of the line and negate the need for any chain.
A short piece of Stainless Steel Chain may be considered advantageous to guard against the worst of the abrasion caused by lying on, and pulling along the seabed.
Leaded Anchorlines are available in diameters 12mm, 14mm and 16mm
Colour: white with black coding
Supplied on a compact plastic reel.

The diameter of the line is generally determined by yacht length overall combined with displacement (weight)
If the length or the weight of your yacht exceeds the parameters for a given line diameter, it is advisable to upgrade to the next size.
If the line is intended as a kedge, racing provision, or secondary back up anchor, the size should be determined by your anticipated application.
