More Information

Jimmy Green Anchor Chain Snubbing Lines are produced to order, in house, by the Jimmy Green Rigging Team from LIROS 3 Strand Nylon with the hook/grab of your choice.

They are therefore available for despatch subject to the current splicing lead time.

Specify your custom build snubbing strop with a choice of chain hook or grab to suit 6mm anchor chain, spliced to a LIROS 14mm 3 strand nylon line which has a comparable break load with 8mm DIN766 Grade 40 anchor chain.

N.B. Chain hooks, grippers and grabs are designed to fit over one link to hold fast on the next link, and not through the link

Please consult the size chart in conjunction with the decision-making factors in our ANCHOR RODE SIZE GUIDE to establish the optimum anchor rode and snubbing line for your yacht

Jimmy Green Anchor Snubbing Lines, Facts and Features:

  • Snubbing absorbs the shock load when the anchor chain pulls tight
  • Snubbing prevents potentially damaging anchor loads from reaching your windlass
  • Snubbing softens the ride at anchor
  • Chain hooks/grabs all slot over the chain, not through the link
  • Plain in/out or retentive options

Jimmy Green Windlass Advisory
Allowing the windlass to take the strain of your anchor rode may result in damage to the windlass, or even the windlass letting go under load at precisely the wrong moment

Jimmy Green Anchor Chain Snubbing Specification Guidelines:

  • Length - as long as practicable (5 or 6 metres is quite common) with a minimum 3 metres
  • Strength - similar to your Anchor Chain and Warp
  • The shock absorption qualities of the snubbing line will increase with greater length and reduced diameter
  • Working life - the line is ultimately sacrificial if you deliberately under specify the line to increase the degree of spring 
  • Add a compensator to increase the elasticity
  • Add anti-chafe webbing for protecting against abrasion where the line passes through fairleads or over the bow roller
  • If a stainless thimble will not fit and/or sit comfortably in the eye of the hook, a soft eye splice is advisable
