Anchor Warps

Anchor WarpsThe Anchor warp is one of the key elements in your anchor system. It needs to be strong and stretchy without being over-sized and difficult to handle. Nylon is usually recomended for this application as it is stronger and stretchier than polyester. Nylon has 20% stretch at the breaking point, whereas polyester has 15%. The main decision to make is between a 3-strand format or an 8-plait such as Anchorplait. However, polyester will suffice if you prefer. Please view our guides for appropriate sizes.
Liros Anchorplait White Nylon (Please click here) 
Anchorplait is manufactured exclusively by Liros Ropes with Easy Splice Markers for Jimmy Green Marine. The 8 strand construction (2 pairs left hand, 2 pairs right hand) gives a balanced performance and no twist under tension. Anchorplait is the rope that won't cockle. In fact it flakes like chain. Ideal for use as Anchor warp as it will also stay supple for all of its working life.
Liros 3-strand Nylon (please click here) 
Liros 3-strand Nylon has the same strength and stretch properties as the 8-plait version. It is significantly cheaper than the 8-plait but suffers a little from stiffness once used in water, especially in the bigger sizes. Overall, a good anchor warp that will still run smoothly over a gipsy.
