3 or 4 colums to the right of your boat length in the MOORING WARP SIZE GUIDE
is a good benchmark for the size of your mooring strop.
N.B. it is always a good idea to take advice on local conditions and to check your proposed size and configuration against other moorings in the area.
3 Strand or Anchorplait Nylon is the best rope on trots or piles where you are moored fore and aft.
N.B. Use only Anchorplait for swinging moorings - 3 strand lines may 'cockle' when the 'swing' turns against the lay of the rope.
The construction of Anchorplait prevents any chance of 'cockling'
