Permanent Mooring Strops

Three or four columns to the right of your boat length in the guide above 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 boats moored in your area.

3 Strand or Anchorplait Nylon is the best rope for trots/piles where you are moored fore and aft.

N.B. use only Anchorplait Nylon for swinging moorings. 3 strand lines may ‘cockle’ when continually twisted against the lay of the rope. The construction of Anchorplait prevents any ‘cockling’
