The Mooring Lines for your Boat are Very Important - They Protect and Hold your Precious Investment - Therefore your choice of the Correct Mooring Line is worth getting right

We don't just sell Mooring and Berth lines
We design a better line st up for your boat and your berth
If you want better than plain off the shelf berth ropes
Choose MoorControl

With our Y Lines we can generally design a line set up for you that will give you just two loops for your friends to drop onto a cleat or bollard, and you make the final adjustments with the tensioning lines

This picture shows a forward spring

tensioned by a forward breast line or bow line. 
Dynamic Loads on the bow line are spread through the whole length of the spring

This picture shows our shock absorbing stern line tensioned by an aft spring
Dynamic Loads on the stern line are spread through the length of the spring as the stern line tries to straighten
We can't guarantee that a line won't part, we can't know if you've taken it over a sharp edge or around a rough edge.
We don't know the condition of your marina or boat or how secure any of the fittings are:
What we do know is - That there is less chance of a line parting or a fitting failing
with our 'Y' Lines than any other line arrangement

To get a quote is easy, use the diagram above to tell us your layout and measurements,
just write in an email the fittings you have that correspond to our diagram
(for example) B,C,D ; E,F
That tells us that you have 3 cleats or bollards down the side of your boat but only 2 on the dock. 
Give us all the measurements between them. 
Just measure flat horizontal along the boat or dock and the straight verticals and we'll work out the rest.
We'll design a line set up for your boat, draw it up, and email it back to you for confirmation.
To make all this easier there is a link to a pdf version further down the page.
You can even scan that and email it back to us if you like.

'Y' Lines let your boat move ...
Up and down - But keep it at its berth

See more on our Berth line Set up page
Only a stern 'Y' Line is shown in the example above
The stern lines are usually the greatest problem due to their lack of length
This is what the 'Y' Line was developed for.
However
'Y' Lines can be used at Stern and Bow 
'Y' Lines Reduce Stress - to lines, fittings and you
The Springs tension the bow/stern lines, the bow/stern lines tension the springs,
the springs and bow/stern lines work together

to dissipate dynamic shock loads 
'Y' Lines can be made to suit a variety of cleat/bollard arrangements

Why Do We Prefer Polyester?

Polyester is one of the Highest Strength for diameter, and Lowest stretch synthetic fibre ropes

Polyester Has one of the longest lifespans in exposure to Ultraviolet Light

Polyester stands up well to repeated stress

Polyester has high resistance to internal wear and is reported to have the longest service life of any fibre rope

These are all qualities needed in Mooring Lines for your boat

 
 

How Heavy Do Your Lines Need To Be?

Line strength rating for mooring lines is not only related to the length or the weight of a boat, but is calculated with a formula using the length, weight and importantly the height and profile area for windage.

The SOLAS Regulations contain these formulas for large ships, and we have adapted the ratings to accomodate smaller (under 70 feet) vessels

The line rating information supplied here is intended as a guide only and cannot replace expert advice on your particular vessel

What is apparent from the chart is the relevance of windage as a major factor in mooring line selection

An Important Consideration is The Size of your Cleats or Bollards

If you choose lines too large a diameter you may not end up with a secure belay
and you may not be able to use enough lines. -
Bigger is not always better!

Too much of a good thing isn't, that's why it's too much

When choosing line length remember that 1.5 to 2 metres is needed for belaying to a cleat or bollard

 

Many line breakages are caused by incorrect mooring line set up -
