The Buoy End - this could also be a river pile or any anchorage point that forms part of a trot mooring
Consider how you are going to attach the warp to the buoy.
The most common solution is a strong, rated shackle connection between the ring on the buoy and a hard thimble spliced into the end of the strop.
- Eye Splice - Galvanised Thimble
- Eye Splice - Stainless Steel Thimble
- Mooring Shackles
You will almost certainly require two lines to secure to the buoy aft, from starboard and port cleats on the quarter to the metal ring.
Alternatively the two aft lines could be made up as a single V Shape bridle instead of two separate lines

Do not use 3 strand construction rope as a single strop on a swinging mooring as a continual circling around the buoy in the tide and wind may untwist the lay of the rope, known as Cockling
Adding a metre or more of PVC Hose or tubular webbing will help to protect the strop from wear and tear as it passes over the bow roller or through fairleads and extend the working life
The Jimmy Green Rigging Team will sleeve it over the line before splicing the other end
You can add a mooring compensator to ameliorate any snatch loads, an optional extra for exposed moorings
Attaching to your strongpoint on deck
Consider how you are going to attach the warp to a strongpoint on the foredeck
